    Investigating Picasso's Obsessions with Erotica

    The fine book from Prestel serves as a significant addition to the burgeoning library on Pablo Picasso, the most popular 20th Century artist in the world. While much of his output (and his output was gargantuan!) is secondary to his acknowledged masterpieces, when grouped as in the manner in which Jean Clair, Director of the Muse Picasso in Paris has done for the purposes of a traveling exhibition, the ingenuity as well as the personal psychosocial issues of the artist become far more focused. That Picasso was a slave to Eros is well known: that he lived a second life in the bordellos of Barcelona is less well known until now! The book abounds in over 450 images in color and in black and white of his voyeuristic tendencies and his celebration of the female form. These sketches and finished works span his early periods, his cubism, and his later life return to representation. They are a joy to view and review in this beautifully presented book. Accompanying the images are informative and enjoyably readable essays by Jean Clair himself, Annie Le Brun, Marie-Noelle Delorme, Pascal Quignard, Jean-Jacques Lebel, Patrick Roegiers, and Malen Gual. PICASSO EROTIQUE is one of those art books that actually merits careful reading s well as being entertained by the wonderful visuals. Highly recommended. Grady Harp
