Prestigious monograph on sculptor Julio González and his important friendship with Pablo Picasso Spanish artist Julio González (1876-1942) ranks alongside Constantin Brancusi (1876-1957) and Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) as one of the most important sculptors of the twentieth century. Featuring insightful essays and lavish illustrations of more than 100 works of art, as well as intimate photographs and documents, this book charts González's personal evolution from traditional metalworker in his father's workshop in Barcelona to avant-garde sculptor in Paris.The publication focuses on the unique collaboration and friendship between González and Picasso, which played a decisive role in the development of González's unique and innovative style. For Picasso, it opened doors to different forms of expression in sculpture. The book also explores González's friendships with other artists, including Brancusi, Pablo Gargallo and Hans Hartung. Essays by Carmen Fernández Aparicio (Reina Sofía, Madrid), Picasso specialist Marilyn McCully, professor of Art History Valeriano Bozal and curator Laura Stamps (Gemeentemuseum Den Haag).
