Pablo Picasso (1881–1973) was the most prolific artist in the history of Western art, and remains the most popular. Celebrated and criticized for his inexhaustible creativity and exuberant lifestyle, he never ceased to innovate. He produced a uniquely rich body of work, adapting and inventing a variety of styles, media, and techniques in dialogue with other artists, both historic and contemporary. This concise and accessible book traces the development of Picasso’s art and success, and is extensively illustrated with works from all periods of the artist’s activity over 80 years.
