"Brigitte Leal covers Picasso's formative years from 1881 through 1916, a period that includes his invention of Cubism with Georges Braque. Christine Piot explores the astonishingly fertile period from 1917 through 1952. Marie-Laure Bernadac discusses the unabashed vigor of Picasso's later years, from 1953 until his death in 1973. Nearly 1,235 magnificent reproductions, 798 in full color, illustrate Picasso's breathtaking range of artistic expression, including paintings, drawings, lithographs, ceramics, and sculpture." "Picasso himself once boasted that a book would have to be written on him every day to keep up with his bursts of creativity. Perhaps. But for art lovers and students seeking just one book, The Ultimate Picasso is unsurpassed."--Jacket.
