Abstract:

"Pablo Picasso is the artistic giant of the twentieth century, and perhaps only Leonardo da Vinci rivals his fame throughout the history of art. In working life that spanned nearly eighty years, Picasso painted some of the archetypal images of modern art, including Les Demoiselles d'Avignon and Guernica. But he did more that create individual works of originality and genius. Picasso invented, and inspired others to invent, a whole new vocabulary and way of thinking about art which have shaped the progress of modernism throughout the twentieth century. Picasso's fame is indisputable but rests largely on his oil paintings. A lesser-known but crucially important part of Picasso's oeuvre is his graphic work, in particular his poster designs. From the 1940s to the 1960s Picasso produced hundreds of designs for posters, many advertising exhibitions of his work. They are interesting and important not only for their striking simplicity and bold color, but also because they sum up many of the expressionist ideas he had developed from Guernica onword. Themes and images from his paintings and ceramics such as bulls and goats, faces and the dove of peace recur and give remarkable coherence to this body of work. Picasso Posters presents a comprehensive panorama of Picasso's poster art. An illustrated introduction tells the story of Picasso's long life and career, and sets his poster work in the context of the genre's history and of his paintings, drawings, and sculpture. Sixty of Picasso's finest posters are reproduced in large-scale color plates, making Picasso Posters a sumptuous., informative, and much-needed study of this little-known aspect of the master's work." -- Publisher's description
