Chefs d’œuvre du Musée national Picasso-Paris
Built as an illustrated timeline, this museum guide discusses Picasso's career year by year, from his first paintings in 1895 to his last works in 1972. The book presents each of the 77 years of creation through works or series of works that are emblematic for the different phases and also for the different techniques he used: paintings, sculptures, drawings, engravings, ceramics, photographs.
Sidebars enrich the timeline and allow a focus on themes specific to the artist. An illustrated biography with archive documents completes the work. This book is perfect as a first reading on the artist.
