"Picasso and Truth" offers a breathtaking and original new look at the most significant artist of the modern era. From Pablo Picasso's early "The Blue Room" to the later "Guernica", eminent art historian T. J. Clark offers a striking reassessment of the artist's paintings from the 1920s and 1930s. Why was the space of a room so basic to Picasso's worldview? And what happened to his art when he began to feel that room-space become too confined--too little exposed to the catastrophes of the twentieth century? Clark explores the role of space and the interior, and the battle between intimacy and monstrosity, in Picasso's art. Based on the A. W. Mellon Lectures in the Fine Arts delivered at the National Gallery of Art, this lavishly illustrated volume remedies the biographical and idolatrous tendencies of most studies on Picasso, reasserting the structure and substance of the artist's work. With compelling insight, Clark focuses on three central works--the large-scale "Guitar and Mandolin on a Table" (1924), "The Three Dancers" (1925), and "The Painter and His Model" (1927)--and explores Picasso's answer to Nietzsche's belief that the age-old commitment to truth was imploding in modern European culture. Masterful in its historical contextualization, "Picasso and Truth" rescues Picasso from the celebrity culture that trivializes his accomplishments and returns us to the tragic vision of his art--humane and appalling, naive and difficult, in mourning for a lost nineteenth century, yet utterly exposed to the hell of Europe between the wars.

Modernism and Authority presents a provocative new take on the early paintings of Pablo Picasso and the writings of Guillaume Apollinaire. Charles Palermo argues that references to theology and traditional Christian iconography in the works of Picasso and Apollinaire are not mere symbolic gestures; rather, they are complex responses to the symbolist art and poetry of figures important to them, including Paul Gauguin, Charles Morice, and Santiago Rusiñol. The young Picasso and his contemporaries experienced the challenges of modernity as an attempt to reflect on the lost relation to authority. For the symbolists, art held authority by revealing something compelling—something to which audiences must respond lest they lose claim to their own moral authority. Instead of the total transformation of the reader or viewer that symbolist creators envision, Picasso and Apollinaire imagine a divided self, responding only partially or ambivalently to the work of art’s call. Navigating these problems of symbolist art and poetry entails considering the nature of the work of art and of one’s response to it, the modern subject’s place in history, and the relevance of historical truth to our methodological choices in the present.

Destined to be a book club favourite - an utterly charming and entirely delicious novel of love, art and food, with a dash of French Riviera sunshine. Juan-les-Pins, the French Riviera, 1936: Ondine is a sixteen-year old girl working at her family's cafe when she is called upon to cook for Picasso, who has secretly rented a nearby villa. Picasso is successful, powerful, virile - yet he is also a man beset by his own demons, and he's at a great crossroads in his personal and professional life. The spirited Ondine is just beginning to discover her own talents and appetites, and she quickly blossoms in many ways from her encounter with Picasso - each inspires the other. New York, 2016: Celine, Ondine's American granddaughter, decides to embark on a journey to the French Riviera in a quixotic quest to do what her fragile mother Julie is no longer able to do - that is, to find out what really happened when her grandmother Ondine crossed paths with the great Picasso ... and possibly recover a lost family treasure. To carry out her quest, Celine takes her mother's place in a cooking class at an elegant Provencal farmhouse, run by Gil, a mercurial English master chef who is wildly talented but doesn't suffer fools and has demons of his own. Set against the sensual sun-infused Cote d'Azur, Cooking for Picasso is a captivating, wise and entirely delicious novel of desire, trust, art and food - and the important choices that we all face in our journey towards love, success and joie de vivre. 'A quest for the missing Picasso worthy of Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn ... An amuse-bouche filled with secret ingredients, covert liaisons, and hidden compartments' Kirkus Reviews 'Serving up an irresistible feast of art, cuisine and hidden treasures on the French Riviera, Aubray brings Picasso brilliantly to life. Her intriguing, intertwined narratives of Celine, her mother and brave grandmother are utterly spellbinding and deeply touching. This delightful, triple-layered mystery is something as rare as a page-turner with soul.' Anne Fortier, bestselling author of Juliet http://www.camilleaubray.com

Deconstructing perspective with Picasso and peers Pioneered by Picasso and Braque, Cubism was the first avant-garde art movement of the 20th century. Heavily influenced by the stark power of African and Native American art and sculpture, it deconstructed conventions of viewpoint and perspective, revolutionizing painting and western art in general. With its flattened, geometric shapes, overlapping, simplified forms and fragmented spatial planes, Cubism became one of the most influential and far-reaching movements in modern art. This book explains the history and theory behind Cubism, examining the work of its prime movers, and those whose work built upon it. Featured artists: Pablo Picasso, Edmond Fortier, Paul Cézanne, George Braque, Henri Le Fauconnier, Jean Metzinger, Fernand Léger, Juan Gris, Albert Gleizes, Henri Laurens, Salvador Dalí, Brassaï, Robert Delaunay, Raymond Duchamp-Villon About the Series: Each book in TASCHEN's Basic Genre Series features: a detailed illustrated introduction plus a timeline of the most important political, cultural and social events that took place during that period a selection of the most important works of the epoch, each of which is presented on a 2-page spread with a full-page image and with an interpretation of the respective work, plus a portrait and brief biography of the artist approximately 100 colour illustrations with explanatory captions
