Text: English, French (translation)From Library Journal:
In a 17th-century mansion in the heart of Paris, the Picasso Museum stands as an image of the artist's vision of himself and of his art: over 3000 works that the artist chose to keep for himself, some familiar and some reproduced for the first time. The museum is based on the works given in lieu of estate taxes by the heirs of the Picasso estate, and one can only give thanks to a system of taxation that can result in riches rather than poverty for the public! A description of the restoration of the building is followed by a selection of the outstanding works, accompanied by excellent commentary, which includes a detailed description of each work, its history, and its place in the context of Picasso's life and work. With its excellent illustrations, this "revised, updated, expanded" edition of Picasso Museum, Paris: Paintings, Collages, Reliefs, Sculpture, & Ceramics (Abrams, 1985, o.p.) provides an opportunity to enter the private world of Picasso the collector.
