About this title


Here is Picasso as never seen before, the indefatigable painter, the bohemian, the sexual sadist, the betrayer, the loyal Communist, the father, and, ultimately, the man sacrificed on the altar of his on contradictions. Huffington draws on several sources for her biography, including interviews with Picasso's daughter, Maya, and Francoise Gilot, his mistress of ten years and the mother of two of his children. Here, Picasso emerges from his myths.
