Item description for The Surrealist Picasso by Anne Baldassari...
Between 1924 and 1934, Picasso's oeuvre developed dramatically. During this decade, the artist maintained a complex relationship with the burgeoning and hugely influential Surrealist movement. Eventually, he diverted from Surrealism to form a variant known as Supra-realism. This volume presents an integrated analysis of the whole of Picasso's artistic creation during the Surrealist period. Thematic texts reveal the extraordinary wealth of Picasso's work during this time. It begins with a study of his research on theater and ballet from 1914-23 and subsequently examines Picasso's work in painting, sculpture, and works on paper. This comprehensive account concludes with a study of the body of Picasso's work from 1935-40. These formative years, during which civil war raged in Picasso's native Spain, laid the groundwork for the increasingly political content of his later works. A detailed, fully illustrated chronology at the end of the book places this crucial period in its full intellectual and historical context.
Anne Baldassari is curator at the Musée National Picasso in Paris. She is the author of numerous works and exhibition catalogs, including Bacon-Picasso (Flammarion/Réunion des Musées Nationaux, 2005), Picasso and Photography (Flammarion, 1997), and the blockbuster Matisse-Picasso (Tate Modern/Centre Pompidou/Museum of Modern Art, 2002).Additional texts from Werner Spies, Agnès de La Baumelle, Etienne-Alain Hubert (Sorbonne), Marie-Laure Bernadac (Louvre), and Philippe Buttner (Beyeler Foundation).
