"Picasso grandit en Espagne, dans une société marquée par des traditions populaires inculquées très tôt aux enfants. Il utilise ensuite les référents de cette culture traditionnelle dans la construction de son oeuvre, bien souvent en les détournant. C'est le cas par exemple lorsqu'il peint des ex-voto, destinés à invoquer les saints ou à servir d'exutoire. Picasso s'approprie les codes et les savoir-faire artisanaux en partant des modèles traditionnels qu'il emploie afin de servir ses préoccupations plastiques. Tout au long de son parcours d'artiste, il n'a de cesse de revenir sur les bases acquises pendant sa jeunesse en Espagne et les revisite à travers un grand nombre de thématiques, parmi lesquelles figurent le cirque, la tauromachie ou les instruments de musique, et par le biais de nombreuses techniques : céramique, orfèvrerie, linogravure ou travail du métal par exemple. Cet ouvrage propose une lecture inédite de l'oeuvre de Picasso en l'inscrivant dans une perspective plus large que celle strictement artistique. Des objets-références issus des collections du musée national des Arts et Traditions populaires transférées au Mucem constituent des éléments de comparaison pour les oeuvres de Picasso ayant trait à ces thèmes et techniques propres à l'artisanat et aux traditions populaires. Deux entretiens inédits, avec Claude Picasso et Lionel Prejger, viennent compléter les récits des collaborations de Picasso avec les meilleurs artisans de son époque. Ils révèlent encore le génie de l'artiste, qui a su magnifier l'artisanat pour gommer, dans son oeuvre, a frontière qui le sépare des beaux-arts."--Page 4 of cover.

5. Picasso portraits [2016]

Book
255 pages : illustrations (some color) ; 30 cm
From first to last, Picasso's prime subject was the human figure and portraiture remained a favourite genre. His earliest portraits were done from life and reveal a precocious ability to catch likeness and suggest character and state of mind. By 1900 Picasso was producing portraits of astonishing variety and thereafter they reflected the full range of his innovative styles - symbolist, cubist, neoclassical, surrealist, expressionist. But however extreme his departure from representational conventions, Picasso never wholly abandoned drawing from the sitter or ceased producing portraits of classic beauty and naturalism. For all his radical originality, Picasso remained in constant dialogue with the art of the past and his portraits often alluded to canonical masterpieces, chosen for their appropriateness to the looks and personality of his subject. Treating favourite Old Masters as indecorously as his intimate friends, he enjoyed caricaturing them and indulging in fantasies about their sex lives that mirrored his own obsession with the interaction of eroticism and creativity. His late suites of free 'variations' after Velazquez's Las Meninas and Rembrandt's The Prodigal Son, both of which involve self-portraiture, allowed him to ruminate on the complex psychological relationship of artist and sitter, and continuities between past and present. When Picasso depicted people in his intimate circle, the nature of his bond with them inevitably influenced his interpretation. The focus of this book is not, however, Picasso's life story but his creative process, and, although following a broadly chronological path, its chapters are structured thematically. Issues addressed in depth include Picasso's exploitation of familiar poses and formats, his sources of inspiration and identification with favourite Old Masters, the role of caricature in his expressive conception of portraiture, the relationship between observation, memory and fantasy, critical differences between his portrayal of men and women, and the motivation behind his defiance of decorum and the extreme transformation of his sitter's appearance.

8. Picasso : the line [2016]

Book
175 pages : illustrations (some color) ; 29 x 27 cm
The first comprehensive study of Picasso's mastery of line drawing and its centrality to his artistic process This beautiful new study provides an insightful reevaluation of the role of line in the work of Pablo Picasso (1881-1973). Picasso pursued drawing assiduously throughout his career, ranging across media such as pen and pencil, charcoal, and papier colle. This book brings together eighty extraordinary drawings spanning the most important phases of Picasso's career. Contributors discuss the artist's intensive exploration of line in relation to three-dimensional form, both in the context of the European artistic tradition and in analyses of selected works. Drawing emerges as central to the artist's process-a creative process that reveals another facet of Picasso's genius for making art out of the simplest of means. The first in-depth exploration of the artist's line drawings, Picasso The Line conveys how essential these powerful works are within the artist's oeuvre. As Picasso himself stated: "line drawings are the only ones that cannot be imitated.".

Picasso's work appears never to have ceased to haunt the imagination of his peers. The great stylistic periods and certain emblematic works by Picasso like Les Demoiselles d'Avignon or Guernica will be answered by contemporary artworks. The publication will showcase the rich confrontation with Picasso's work undertaken by contemporary artists since the 1960s. Pablo Picasso's vibrant presence struck a chord in the 1960s with the return to Picassien archetypal figures by Pop Art and Narrative Figuration by Warhol, Lichenstein, Equipo Cronica, Erro. Martin Kippenberger's self-portraits reveal the impact of Picasso's public image on the imagination of 20th century artists. David Hockney's Polaroid composites and multi-screen videos echo Picasso's Cubism and his exploration of a polyfocal space. Picasso's stylistic eclecticism, his "cannibalism" of the old masters, the free craftsmanship of the later paintings inspired a new generation of artists like Georg Baselitz, Jean-Michel Basquiat, or Julian Schnabel. Rineke Dijkstra's video installation I See a Woman Crying (Weeping Woman), (2009-2010) will demonstrate the presence of Picasso's work in contemporary imagination, in its most diverse means of expression (cinema, digital images, from videos to comic strips). With works by Francis Bacon, Georg Baselitz, Jean-Michel Basquiat, David Douglas Duncan, Rineke Dijkstra, David Hockney, Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Martin Kippenberger, Jeff Koons, Paul McCarthy, Richard Prince, Sigmar Polke, Julian Schnabel, Andy Warhol.

"Picasso et l'art contemporain ? Picasso contemporain ? Le passage du temps apporte à ces questions des réponses nouvelles. Pour nombre d'observateurs des années 1960 aux années 1980, l'art de Marcel Duchamp contribue à reléguer celui de Picasso aux marges de l'histoire. Alors que les médias de masse, de Paris Match à L'Humanité, font de Picasso un héros populaire, les revues spécialisées s'intéressent quant à elles à son oeuvre, mais seulement pour débattre du moment de son obsolescence. Le centième anniversaire de la naissance du peintre, en 1981, marque un retournement auquel succède une forme de " Picasso mania" au début des années 1980. Armé d'un appareil Polaroïd, David Hockney entreprend une relecture du cubisme. Pinceau en main Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Antonio Saura, Malcolm Morley... s'emparent de Picasso, dont on redécouvre les peintures tardives. Avec plus de trois cents oeuvres, incluant films (Kusturica, Godard..), vidéo (Rineke Dijkstra), photographies (Agbodjelou, Hockney...), peintures et sculptures, l'exposition " Picasso.mania " démontre que l'héritage plastique et poétique de Pablo Picasso est assurément toujours vivant."--P.

"One of Pablo Picasso's most important muses is the subject of this diverse and beautiful collection of drawings, paintings, sculptures, photographs, and ceramics. She was known as 'the girl with the ponytail' and her image has become one of the art world's most iconic. Sylvette David was a shy girl when she met Picasso on the Côte d'Azur in the spring of 1954. For the artist, Sylvette represented the ideal beauty of the time and she was his model for numerous works that covered nearly every aspect of his oeuvre. This book brings together the series of more than fifty masterpieces culled from museums and private collections from around the world. It further provides a unique insight into Picasso's art of the 1950s and the culture of the time"-- Provided by publisher.
