At the height of his powers, Pablo Picasso was the artist as revolutionary, breaking through the niceties of form in order to mount a direct challenge to the values of his time. At the height of his fame, he was the artist as royalty: incalculably wealthy, universally idolized--and wholly isolated.In this stunning critical assessment, John Berger--one of this century's most insightful cultural historians--trains his penetrating gaze upon this most prodigious and enigmatic painter and on the Spanish landscape and very particular culture that shaped his life and work.

There are many books that chart the life of Vincent van Gogh and Picasso, but there are very few that discuss their early personal life. Vincent and Pablo: The Revised Version is a romantic fiction that explores what might have happened if both artists had arrived in London, as they both intended, at the same time. In 1873, Vincent van Gogh was sent to London as a gallery assistant for Goupil and Co. He lived in Brixton and preached in a local church. Gradually, he became disillusioned with art dealing and unhappy in his personal life. He was recalled to Paris, giving up art dealing for the church and then for art itself. If he had stayed in London, his passion for art, and his personal life, may have concluded very differently. In 1900, Pablo Picasso set off from Barcelona to travel London via Paris. After a short stay in Paris, the terrible weather and personal difficulties forced him to return to Barcelona, if Picasso had made it to London and van Gogh had stayed, could they have both established a friendship? Would their art be different from the masterpieces that followed? Tony Warner believes that Lust for Life by Irving Stone, about van Gogh, is one of the best-known books in the artistic sphere. He hopes to recreate the writing style of Graham Greene and Pat Barker, both of whom have a way of a telling a story without overburdening it with metaphysics or allegory. This book will be enjoyed by readers of historical fiction, especially those with an interest in art and romance.

A revised edition of the tell-all biography of the businessman turned outsider artist In this no-holds-barred biography of controversial artist Matt Lamb, Richard Speer takes readers on an all-access tour of Lamb's life and times. With true insider access that includes interviews with family and friends and Lamb's own personal archives, the book offers a massively compelling look at the artist's life. The successful millionaire CEO of a family business, Lamb turned away from business and toward painting as a response to a diagnosis of grave illness. Whether that diagnosis was accurate or not, it was the basis for a massive personal transformation, from wealthy but little-known businessman to an artist hailed as the heir of Pablo Picasso. Thumbing his nose at the art establishment that dismissed his work and wealth as the antithesis of starving-artist chic, Lamb dedicated his work to world peace and redefined the art world in the process. Revised to cover the years leading up to the artist's death in early 2012 Tells the story of a truly unique character who succeed spectacularly in the wildly different worlds of business and art This book offers an insider's look at the art world's ultimate "outside insider" For those who relish tales of larger-than-life personalities who break the mold, Matt Lamb: The Art of Success is a thrilling and enlightening biography of an unforgettable personality.

This is the first critical examination of Pablo Picasso's use of religious imagery and the religious import of many of his works with secular subject matter. Though Picasso was an avowed atheist, his work employs spiritual themes—and, often, traditional religious iconography. In five engagingly written, accessible chapters, Jane Daggett Dillenberger and John Handley address Picasso's cryptic 1930 painting of the Crucifixion; the artist's early life in the Catholic church; elements of transcendence in Guernica; Picasso's later, fraught relationship with the church, which commissioned him in the 1950s to paint murals for the Temple of Peace chapel in France; and the centrality of religious themes and imagery in bullfighting, the subject of countless Picasso drawings and paintings.

Picasso once said, "It is my misfortune--and probably my delight--to use things as my passions tell me." And so he did, throughout his long life, across a stylistically pluralist oeuvre in which his amorous life could be traced through the lines of women's faces. For Picasso always used his lovers as his models (or his models as his lovers, depending on your point of view), and Marie-Thérèse Walter was no exception. Picasso met the 17-year-old in 1927, and she soon became his favorite model and muse, as well as his secret lover. Over the next ten years, Picasso intensified his sculptural and graphic work, stylistically ranging between classical and Surrealist, went through an acrimonious and unsuccessful divorce with his wife Olga, and fathered a daughter named Maya with Marie-Thérèse, who lived in the vain hope that one day Picasso would marry her. She hanged herself after his death. This publication, which features a multi-disciplinary selection of masterpieces by the artist, is the second in a series devoted to Picasso and Women; The Time with Françoise Gilotwas the first.
