Françoise Gilot's candid memoir remains the most revealing portrait of Picasso written, and gives fascinating insight into the intense and creative life shared by two modern artists. Françoise Gilot was in her early twenties when she met the sixty-one-year-old Pablo Picasso in 1943. Brought up in a well-to-do upper-middle-class family, who had sent her to Cambridge and the Sorbonne and hoped that she would go into law, the young woman defied their wishes and set her sights on being an artist. Her introduction to Picasso led to a friendship, a love affair, and a relationship of ten years, during which Gilot gave birth to Picasso’s two children, Paloma and Claude. Gilot was one of Picasso’s muses; she was also very much her own woman, determined to make herself into the remarkable painter she did indeed become. Life with Picasso, written with Carlton Lake and published in 1961, is about Picasso the artist and Picasso the man. We hear him talking about painting and sculpture, his life, his career, as well as other artists, both contemporaries and old masters. We glimpse Picasso in his many and volatile moods, dismissing his work, exultant over his work, entertaining his various superstitions, being an anxious father. But Life with Picasso is not only a portrait of a great artist at the height of his fame; it is also a picture of a talented young woman of exacting intelligence at the outset of her own notable career.

Appeal Of Surface

In the course of an extraordinary career driven by his virtually inexhaustible vitality and his ceaseless quest for renewal in his own work, Pablo Picasso brought forth an unusually extensive body of art. This book is not conceived as a survey of that ceuvre, but focuses instead upon Picasso the innovator. In each of the works selected, which together represent all of the artist's creative phases, from Cubism to abstraction to his late work in sculpture, the "appeal of surface" occupies the center of attention. The paintings, drawings, sculptures, and ceramics included bear witness to Picasso's intense concern with materials and their formal translation into surface area, color, and line. These works tell us a great deal about the fundamental principles of his working approach, the structure of his visual imagery, and the conceptual impulses that underlie his art. This handsomely designed catalogue includes five essays examining his work in various mediums and genres, a biography and bibliography, an essay exploring the similarities between Duchamp and Picasso, and a section of photographs by Edward Quinn, capturing the artist at work and play.
