A Life of Picasso IV: The Minotaur Years: 1933-1943

A Life of Picasso IV: The Minotaur Years: 1933-1943 - John Richardson

A Life of Picasso IV: The Minotaur Years: 1933-1943


The spectacular fourth and final volume of Picasso's life is set in Paris, Normandy, the south of France, Royan, and Barcelona during the Spanish Civil War and at the beginning of World War II.

Drawing on original and exhaustive research from interviews and never-before-seen material in the Picasso family archives, this book opens with a visit by the Hungarian-French photographer Brassa� to Picasso's chateau in Normandy, Boisgeloup, where he would take his iconic photographs of the celebrated plaster busts of Marie-Th�r�se, Picasso's mistress and muse. Picasso was contributing to Andr� Breton's Minotaur magazine and he was also spending more time with the likes of Man Ray, Salvador Dal�, Lee Miller, and the poet Paul �luard, in Paris as well as in the south of France. It was during this time that Picasso began writing surrealist poetry and became obsessed with the image of himself as the mythic Minotaur--head of a bull, body of a man--and created his most famous etching, Minotauromachie.

Richardson shows us the artist is as prolific as ever, painting Marie-Th�r�se, but also painting the surrealist photographer Dora Maar who has become a muse, a collaborator and more. In April 1937, the bombing of the town of Guernica during the Spanish Civil War inspires Picasso's vast masterwork of the same name, which he paints in just a few weeks for the Spanish Pavilion at the Paris World's Fair. When the Nazis occupy Paris in 1940, Picasso chooses to remain in the city despite the threat that his art would be confiscated. In 1943, Picasso meets Fran�oise Gilot who would replace Dora, and as Richardson writes, "rejuvenate his psyche, reawaken his imagery and inspire a brilliant sequence of paintings." As always, Richardson tells Picasso's story through his work during this period, analyzing how it shows what the artist was feeling and thinking. His fascinating and accessible narrative immerses us in one of the most exciting moments in twentieth century cultural history, and brings to a close the definitive and critically acclaimed account of one of the world's most celebrated artists.
