A LIFE OF PICASSO VOL. 2
THE CUBIST REBEL 1907-1916
Materia: Estudios / escritos de artistas
In The Cubist Rebel, 1907–1916, the second volume of his Life of Picasso, John Richardson reveals the young Picasso in the Baudelairean role of “the painter of modern life”—a role that stipulated the brothel as the noblest subject for a modern artist. Hence his great breakthrough painting, Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, with which this book opens.
