Taking a fresh approach to discussions around on of the twentieth century's greatest artists, Picasso: The Artist and His Muses examines the significance of the six women who were most important to Picasso's artistic development, as well as exploring the notion of the artist - muse relationship in depth.
Featuring texts by some of the world's leading female art writers, this book focuses on the prominent muses throughout Picasso's life—Fernande Olivier, Olga Khokhlova, Marie-Thérèse Walter, Dora Maar, Françoise Gilot and Jacqueline Roque—making clear the impact that these women had on Picasso's creativity and their significant long-term influence on the development of his work. Coinciding with a North American exhibition programme, this beautifully designed and illustrated book reopens the door to discussions around Picasso's life and work.
