39th Year: Special Issue
Published by Cahiers d'Art.
Edited by Staffan Ahrenberg, Sam Keller, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Cécile Godefroy, Vérane Tasseau, Anya Bondell.
Cahiers d'Art is proud to present a special issue of the Cahiers d'Art revue entitled 'Picasso: In the Studio' giving a close look at Picasso in the studio as you have never seen him, featuring rare and previously unpublished photographs illustrating the artist in his studio and the work itself in progress. Through this rich and detailed exploration of the artists practice, the issue highlights both the creative process and artist’s gesture.
Cécile Godefroy and Vérane Tasseau are guest editors for the issue. It is comprised of seven chapters, each devoted to a particular technique examined through rare photographs of the artist in his studios alongside texts by noted historians such as Elizabeth Cowling, Cécile Godefroy, Ann Hindry, Brigitte Leal, Marilyn McCully and Vérane Tasseau.
Each chapter is followed by an interview with contemporary artists such as Miquel Barceló, George Condo, Sheila Hicks, William Kentridge, Jeff Koons, Robert Longo, and Tatiana Trouvé who have been invited to comment on the related technique in Picasso’s work, and in their own work as well as on their relationship to the artist.
