Picasso and Portraiture: Representation and Transformation
Pablo Picasso, William Stanley Rubin, Anne Baldassari
Museum of Modern Art, distributed by Harry N. Abrahams, 1996 - Art - 496 pages
The first 100 years of modern art witnessed the popularization of photography and an increasing emphasis on abstraction in painting, which threatened the survival of portraiture as a genre. It continued to flourish, however, because modern painters--Picasso foremost among them--sought and found new ways to portray the human face. The hundreds of works reproduced here illustrate the multiple solutions Picasso invented to solve the "problem" of the modernist portrait. Illustrations, 230 in color.
