Goya's last works by Jonathan Brown( Book )

14 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 729 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Francisco Jose de Goya y Lucientes (1746-1828) had a prolific career and spent the last four years of his life in Bordeaux with other political emigres from Spain. In those years and just before his departure from Spain, he created a body of work that is little known to the public and consists of small-scale, intimate pieces, including uncommissioned portraits of friends and family, miniature paintings on ivory plaques, and numerous drawings and lithographs. These simple, bold, and brilliant works attest to the artist's continuing vitality in his old age and also offer some insight into his life during that last period in Bordeaux. They are the culminating achievement of a great artist who was, in his own words, "still learning" as he faced death."--Jacket

This illuminating book documents Picasso's variations on the work of earlier masters over the course of his career, revealing the significant role that these works played in his creative thinking.

Games of wit : Picasso's variations on the old masters by Susan Grace Galassi( Book )

8 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation discusses a selection of variations from all of the major periods of Picasso's art. From the parody of Manet's Olympia of 1902-03 to the 44 paintings after Velazquez's Las Meninas of 1957, a focus of this study, the process of transformation by which Picasso dissects and recreates masterpieces of the past is closely examined. Examples of variation in different media, and those which represent the range of French, German and Spanish masters that haunted Picasso, are included. In addition, different types of variation, from witty jokes made in passing to sustained dialogues lasting several months, and from variations that primarily develop the subject matter of the theme to those that focus on stylistic conversion, demonstrate the variety of variation in Picasso's art, and the ways in which he makes works by other artists his own
