Covering the period from the creation of theDemoiselles d'Avignon in 1907 to the artist's association with the Surrealists in the early 1930s, the book offers a journey through Picasso's imagination and reveals--by way of Apollinaire, Breton, and Freud, among others--the ideas and reflections associated with life and death in his work. Published in association with the Museu Picasso in Barcelona, the book also includes an essay on Picasso's biomorphic motifs by the leading Spanish critic J. F. Yvars.
