The Picasso Museum is the repository of thousands of works by the most thoroughly documented artist the world has ever known. In 1979, six years after Pablo Picasso's death, his personal collection of works by himself and by other artists was presented to the French nation and is now housed in the handsomely restored 17th-century Hötel Salé in Paris. Since its opening in 1985, visitors have been drawn to the museum in the hundreds of thousands, and it has become ope of the city's most powerful cultural attractions. The collection is a revelation — a fascinating reflection of the taste and artistic priorities of the twentieth century's most innovative, influential, and prolific artist.
This is a companion volume to the first catalogue of the Picasso Museum — covering paintings, papiers collés, picture reliefs, sculptures,
and ceramics — which was published by Abrams in 1986. This new volume, compiled by the honorary conservateur en chef of the museum, illustrates and fully documents more than 1,500 works, including Picasso's entire collection of his own drawings, watercolors, gouaches, and pastels.
The catalogue is arranged chronologically, from the earliest academic works through the great years of Cubism and abstraction to the final burst of undiminished energy in the last months of the artist's life. It includes many important sketches and studies for major paintings and sculptures. The illustrations are accompanied by scholarly commentaries that place Picasso's works in the context of his life and of the contemporary art-historical scene, as well as by a list of exhibitions and a selected bibliography.
