Throughout his artistic career Picasso was fascinated by both caricature and the idea of the grotesque: light and dark representations of the distorted human figure. Picasso: From Caricature to Metamorphosis of Style, which accompanies a major exhibition at the Museu Picasso, Barcelona, is the first book to examine the distortion of the figure as a central creative force in Picasso's art and a springboard for his continual process of stylistic metamorphosis. The journey through Picasso's work takes us from the satirical illustration and portrait caricature of the 1890s to the radical distortion of the figure in Les Demoiselles D'Avignon and later Cubist portraits; from light-hearted vignettes of Diaghilev, Bakst and Apollinaire to the monstrous, Surrealist portraits of women of the 1920s-40s; from portraits of the artist as clown to the Verve series of meditations on the painter and his model. Finally we see Picasso as caricatured by his entourage: the tables are turned. Caricatures, monsters, puppets and grotesque figures populate the pages of this book, which is illustrated with 400 reproductions of key works by Picasso drawn from public and private collections worldwide: paintings, drawings, sculptures, ceramics and prints. More than 100 of the works reproduced are previously unpublished. With a series of interpretative essays by an international cast of distinguished Picasso scholars, the book is essential reading for all those with an interest in the life and work of a twentieth-century master.

Review:

'... a good survey of the less-emphasized periods in the artist's career...' Ellen Bates, Library Journal 'No other book has ever so convincingly demonstrated that Picasso was the greatest clown, prankster and buffoon of his generation.' Brian Sewell, Evening Standard 'A primary attraction here are the large-format illustrations, over 300 of them in colour... Many of the works here were previously only available in the Zervos catalogue monochrome reproductions; and over 100 of them have never previously been published. So the illustrations fill a lot of gaps, combining scientific interest with the pleasure of discovery at every turn.' Peter Read, The Art Book
