The Sculptures of Pablo Picasso

Regular price Regular price $80

This book was published on the occasion of The Sculptures of Pablo Picasso at Gagosian, 980 Madison Avenue, New York. The comprehensive exhibition presented sculptures by the artist made throughout his career in a diversity of mediums, from his early bronzes and monumental heads to his constructions with found objects and late-period painted metal cutouts. It includes both iconic and celebrated sculptures such as Head of a Woman (Fernande) (1909), Glass of Absinthe (1914), Study for a Monument to Guillaume Apollinaire (1928), and Head of a Bull (1950), along with other rarely seen works.

Chronicling Picasso’s experimentation with sculpture, the bilingual (English/French) book emphasizes the medium’s importance within his practice. It was edited by Diana Widmaier Picasso, who also contributes an introduction, and features Robert Rosenblum’s essay “Facts into Fiction: Picasso’s Metamorphic Sculpture,” which analyzes the artist’s restless inventiveness with three-dimensional form. The publication includes a list of the exhibited works, each with an extensive entry containing provenance and bibliographic details.
