Picasso's granddaughter introduces readers to a sublime selection of the artist's erotic masterpieces, brought together in this lush and elegant volume. Pablo Picasso lived life as he painted it--with sensual energy and abandon. Nearly every woman whom he loved has been immortalised in his work, from the playful nudes of his early years to the classical representations of the twenties and the more frankly sexual paintings that crowned his career. With mesmerising colour and an appealing design,

    This review is from: Picasso: Art Can Only Be Erotic (Hardcover)

    Picasso was at least as passionate a man as he was an artist. It’s no suprise that his passions sometimes came together – it would be more surprising if they did not. For many reasons, the lushly erotic side of his ouvre has not received the publicity that other of his work has. In this book, one of Picasso’s grand-daughters seeks to correct that imbalance.

    The book includes brief biographical notes, emphasizing the comings and goings of women in his life, Marie-Therese Walter (the author’s mother) among them. Although interesting in itself and as context for his erotic art, it’s the art itself that demands attention. The coffee-table size and excellent printing do all that one might hope to present these hundred-plus works.

    Picasso’s erotic works vary as widely as the rest of his ouvre does. Drawings and watercolors up to about 1905 reflect his formal training. They include nudes in widely exposed positions as well as couples exchanging physical affection in many ways. Although the period around 1906 represents a turning point in his style, works from 1942 (“Woman looking at a sleeping man”) and later still show that classical sense. Mostly however, the more mature paintings, prints, and ceramic works arise from the Picasso that most people know: a shattering of rational structure under the pounding of physical and emotional abandon.

    One fact comes through continuously: Diana Widmaier Picasso is proud of her grandfather’s masculine power, and wants it celebrated as much as the rest of his life. Other authors have shown a dark side to this drive, but this author wants readers to know how brightly it burned, as well. This book doesn’t just reflect his intensity, but captures some of her own as well.
