VISITING PICASSO - The Notebooks and Letters of Roland Penrose

PABLO PICASSO (1881-1973)

What makes these documents so important is also what makes them so exhilarating and fresh. They are uncensored, first-hand, on-the-spot observations of Picasso at home and in company.

The informal immediacy of the jottings – anecdotes, incidents, telling details and off-the-record conversations – makes for a compellingly candid read.

Penrose’s notes also include revealing accounts of the artist at work, affording rare insights into the making of masterpieces, such as Guernica. Photographs taken by, among others, Penrose’s wife, the celebrated photographer Lee Miller, add to the record by illustrating the colourful cast of characters, from Dora Maar and Françoise Gilot to Jean Cocteau and Gary Cooper, as well as artworks and events.

This fascinating record of an era, and of the inside workings of a remarkable relationship, is a must for anyone with a scholarly interest in Picasso, but also for the many readers who are intrigued by the life and personality of one of the most charismatic personalities the world has ever known.

Elizabeth Cowling Elizabeth Cowling is a Reader in History of Art at Edinburgh University. Her previous publications include the British Academy Book Award-winning Picasso: Style and Meaning. She was also co-curator of the enormously successful ‘Matisse Picasso’ exhibition shown in London, Paris and New York.
