Item description for Picasso: Tradition and Avant-Garde by F. Calvo-Serraller...
This lavish volume demonstrates the dynamism and creative energy present throughout Picasso's abundant career and his artistic relationship with tradition. The excepttional works assembled in Picasso: Tradition and Avant-Garde have not often been seen together and show the artist s dual perspective between tradition and modernity. In analyzing Picasso s revolutionary works of art, this lavish volume finds them in constant creative dialogue with the Old Masters such as Ingres, El Greco, Raphael, Titian, Rubens, Rembrandt, Goya, and many others. Text by Francisco Calvo Serraller focuses on Picasso s awareness of history, and Jorge Semprun contemplates Guernica s place in the history of the period and conversations with Picasso himself about the famous mural he painted for the Spanish Pavilion at the Paris World Fair in 1937.
