Pablo Picasso: Family Album
Text by José Lebrero Stals, Olivier Widmaier Picasso, Jean Clair.
Throughout Pablo Picasso’s career, members of his immediate family were portrayed in a variety of works and media, becoming recurrent motifs. This publication compiles a significant group of portraits from various museums and private collections. Produced between 1906 and 1971, many of the works reproduced here were inspired by the female companions with whom Picasso shared his life, such as Fernande Olivier, Olga Khokhlova, Marie-Thérèse Walter, Dora Maar, Françoise Gilot and Jacqueline Rogne, as well as by his children, Paloma, Claude and Paul. The artworks in Pablo Picasso: Family Album, which range from oil paintings and drawings to sculptures, linocuts and engravings, suggest a special harmony in Picasso’s life between familial and artistic realms.
