Picasso and Portraiture [Hardcover]
William Stanley Rubin (Editor), Anne Baldassari (Editor), Museum of Modern Art

Abrams, N; First Edition edition, 496 pages, 1996, a fine copy with no defects.

This book focuses on this part of the artist's oevre, reproducing works in oil, gouache, pastel, charcoal and other media to illustrate the solutions Picasso invented to solve the "problem" of the modernist portrait. Published to accompany an exhibition to be shown at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1996, the book contains eight essays examining different periods and aspects of Picasso's career. The personal relationships between Picasso and his subjects are clarified. Contributions come from Anne Baldassari, Pierre Daix, Michael Fitzgerald, Brigitte Leal, Marilyn McCully, Robert Rosenblum, William Rubin, Helene Seckel and Kirk Varnedoe
