Introducing Picasso

Front Cover
Totem Books, Nov 30, 1995 - Art - 171 pages
Did Picasso invent modern art? So compelling is the myth of Picasso that one could be forgiven for thinking that he did. His mesmeric gaze of both matador and bull seems to hold the answer to the enigma of 20th century art.
The enormity of Picasso's output, 20,000 works, and the diversity of techniques, media and styles are astonishing. Pablo Picasso used his immense talent and provocative imagery to pose the question "what is art meant to look like?" But has the personal fascination with the man obscured the originality and true meaning of his art? Introducing Picasso details how Picasso's early explorations with cubism resulted in a dynamic challenge not only to the modernists, but to the entire history of Western art.
