T1 Cubist Picasso : Paris, Musée national Picasso, 19 Septembre 2007-7 Janvier 2008. A1 Picasso, Pablo,, Baldassari, Anne., Musée Picasso (Paris, France), Réunion des musées nationaux (France), PB Réunion des musées nationaux : Flammarion PP Paris YR 2007 SN 9782080300485 2080300482 9782711854592 2711854590 AB ""You can paint with whatever you like, with pipes, postage stamps, postcards or playing cards, candlesticks, pieces of oil-cloth, detachable collars, wallpaper, newspapers ..." This list drawn up by poet and critic Guillaume Apollinaire in his aesthetic meditations on cubist painters included almost every component of Pablo Picasso's great invention of cubism. Yet anarchy was absent from this period of the master's career despite its revolutionary impact, as demonstrated by the major retrospective conceived by the Musee National Picasso in Paris in a homage to Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, the venerable yet still potent masterpiece that celebrated its centennial in 2007." "Based on a selection of outstanding artworks, this exhibition catalogue presents an assessment of this period of radical painterly innovation and offers an international overview of recent research on the subject. The texts not only elucidate the main developmental and stylistic stages of a creative explosion that spanned the first two decades of the century (1906-24), they also shed light on the wealth and coherence of Picasso's oeuvre down through the years." "This seminal work combines quality reproductions with critical essays by the world's leading authorities on Picasso and cubism: Anne Baldassari, Pierre Daix, Pepe Karmel, Irving Lavin, Jean-Claude Lebensztejn, and Leo Steinberg."--Jacket.
