All of Pablo Picasso’s genre-shifting creative output is on display in this coffee table book. Unmissable for fans of the Spanish artist, it features an overview of Picasso’s work dating from his earliest paintings right up until his last works. With an introductory essay by Roland Penrose, a longtime friend of Picasso’s and a painter in his own right, as well as added notes by art historian David Lomas, the result is a book that guides the reader through Picasso’s massively influential career, painting by incredible painting, many of which are printed in full color. Every art history lover will want to add this book to their collection. Roland Penrose was a painter and art collector who died in 1984. A close personal friend of Picasso, Penrose was perfectly placed to write this book about the artist’s life and work. Drawing on their own friendship and his insights into Picasso’s style and inspirations, Penrose’s book is a definitive work on an artist hailed today as one of the greatest creatives of all time. David Lomas is a professor of art history at the University of Manchester.
