Scenes from the life of Picasso, by master portraitists such as Cecil Beaton, Brassaï and more
Pablo Picasso (1881–1973) always maintained a very particular relationship with his own depiction in photography, and with the photographers in his milieu, and possessed an intuitive grasp of how to use his image as an icon.
This elegant volume includes photographs of Picasso's life, work and studios by Cecil Beaton, Arnold Newman, Brassaï, David Douglas Duncan, André Villers and Robert Doisneau, as well as Dora Maar's famous pictures of the various states of Picasso's Guernica.
Picasso: The Photographer's Gaze immerses the reader in the universe of Picasso and brings together images that explore a creator who is simultaneously the author, model, witness and viewer of his own work and life. This photographic stroll from one studio to the next shows the multidisciplinary richness of his work, where experimentation is the priority.
