Picasso and Maya: Father and Daughter

Regular price Regular price $100

This book was published on the occasion of Picasso’s Picassos: A Selection from the Collection of Maya Ruiz-Picasso at Gagosian, 976 Madison Avenue, New York, and Picasso and Maya: Father and Daughter at Gagosian, Paris. Diana Widmaier-Picasso curated both exhibitions: the first gathered works from the collection of her mother, Maya Ruiz-Picasso, Pablo Picasso’s eldest daughter; the second commemorated the relationship between Picasso and Maya.

More than just an exhibition catalogue, this comprehensive reference publication explores the figure of Maya throughout Picasso’s work and chronicles the relationship between the artist and his daughter. The volume features an interview between Ruiz-Picasso and Widmaier-Picasso, along with archival photographs by Edward Quinn and from the Picasso family, many of which have never been published before.

Additionally, it includes essays by Picasso scholars Elizabeth Cowling, Carmen Giménez, and Pepe Karmel. A section of the book is devoted to Picasso’s plaster sculpture La Femme Enceinte (1959) and includes a discussion of Roe Ethridge’s vivid, specially commissioned photographs of this work.
