Cahiers d’Art is a French artistic and literary journal founded in Paris in 1926 by Christian Zevros. It was published, with an interruption from 1941 to 1943, until 1960, and was relaunched by Swedish collector Staffan Ahrenberg in 2012. Between 1932 and 1978, the eponymous publishing house issued Pablo Picasso par Christian Zervos, a definitive thirty-three-volume catalogue raisonné.
