Item description for Picasso: La joie de vivre (1945-1948) by Jean-Louis Andral & Pierre Daix...

In 1946, when Picasso received the offer to use one of the great rooms in the castle at Antibes as a studio, he exclaimed enthusiastically: "I'm not only going to paint, I'll decorate the museum too." The result was a series of paintings and drawings that reflected the jubilant spirit, the joie de vivre, of a country that was free once more. Picasso later added sculptures, graphic works, and ceramics to this collection, forming the basis for what would be France's first museum dedicated to him, inaugurated in 1966 as Musée Picasso, Antibes.This catalog, published in conjunction with the exhibition of Palazzo Grassi, comprises a great selection of the most outstanding works from the Musée Picasso of Antibes, a large number of which have never been shown beyond the museum's walls. These include the murals La Joie de Vivre, 1946, The Sea Urchin Eater, 1946, and the impressive sculpture Head of Woman with Chignon, 1932. Featuring paintings, drawings, sculptures, and ceramics, the works illustrate a splendid period in Picasso's artistic career. The volume also includes a selection of photographs of Picasso by Polish artist Michel Sima, which portray the context in which Picasso created the works.
Jean-Louis Andral is Chief Curator of the Musée Picasso of Antibes. Pierre Daix is a novelist, essayist, and art historian. Daix knew Picasso well for a quarter century and has written extensively on the artist. He was awarded the Georges Pompidou Prize in 2003 for his book Picasso: Life and Art.

Reviews - What do customers think about Picasso: La joie de vivre (1945-1948)?

A Glowing Review  Jun 14, 2007
The many rare photos of Picasso working in Antibes are the joyous heart of this fine art book. I've always been fascinated by the story of how the Antibes Picasso museum was created and this tells it better than any book I've seen. A few of the reproductions are supersized in fold out pages. Especially informative are the photos of Picasso painting works in their early stages and the ability to flip back a few pages to see the finished paintings (look closely to see the lines of the early stages seeping through the finished product). Read this book in the sunshine if possible.
