Published in conjunction with the exhibition, Picasso and Things, The Still Lifes of Picasso, organized by the Cleveland Museum of Art in collaboration with the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Reunion des Musees Nationaux, Musee Picasso Paris.
"A common object in the eye of an uncommon artist becomes a unique image, a spatial expression of symbol and reality. Picasso's exploration of the still life in every media and in every period is the theme of this outstanding work. Published to accompany a major loan exhibition opening at the Cleveland Museum of Art and traveling to the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Grand Palais, Paris, this is not only a superb catalog but, as the first scholarly study of this theme, an important contribution to the Picasso literature. In chronological order, with full citations and color illustrations, illuminating essays, and discussions of related works, this is a stimulating guide through seven decades of creativity. Substantial in size and content, handsome in format and production, this is a valuable book, both as a record of a landmark exhibition and as a comprehensive examination of this special aspect of Picasso's work. Highly recommended."
