About this title

Synopsis:

The Sketchbooks of Picasso is the only collection available of the private sketchbooks of Pablo Picasso, which he began in Barcelona in 1894. For more than seventy years, as the young painter blossomed and matured into the greatest artist of the twentieth century, he kept a record of his ideas and thoughts, so that by 1964 there were 175 sketchbooks, a unique and startling picture of the mind of a genius at work. Accompanying the major sections are essays by six of the greatest American art historians: E.A. Carmean, Sam Hunter, Rosalind Krauss, Theodore Reff, Robert Rosenblum, and Gert Schiff. A foreword by Claude Picasso, the artist's son, and a reminiscence by Francoise Gilot, Claude's mother, provide a more personal understanding of the part the sketchbooks played in Picasso's life.

From Library Journal:

This is the catalog of an exhibition held at the Pace Gallery in New York, with essays by six art writers and Claude Picasso and Francoise Gilot. Picasso saved almost everythingselections from his notebooks scan over 60 years. He had a personal calligraphic shorthand and monumental fertility of ideas. Six complete sketchbooks and fragments of 36 others are included as "Saltimbanques" give way to "Demoiselles," "Sabines," etc. Commentary runs the gamut from scholarly to personal reminiscence. An expensive, quality production of interest to artists, art school libraries, modern art history collections. Hara Seltzer, NYPL
