Synopsis

Featuring rarely and never-before-seen works from the collection of Picasso's wife and muse, Jacqueline, this book celebrates the sheer force of Picasso's creativity in his final years.

In his late years, Picasso embraced painting, drawing, and sculpture with renewed vigor. His obsession with the female form grew more intense as he portrayed Jacqueline Picasso, his second wife, in hundreds of works, more than any of his other muses. This book offers the public the first chance to view never-before exhibited works and many that are rarely seen, all dating from the late period of Picasso's career. Beautifully reproduced images reveal the ways Picasso continued to reinvent his art as he aged. This book also features fascinating insights into how Picasso's contemporaries reacted to this stage of his oeuvre, his relationships with younger artists and with popular culture, and the pivotal role played by Jacqueline Picasso within the artist's enduring legacy.
