Picasso Portraits, Hardback (October 2016)

This book focuses not only on Picasso's life story but his creative process.

Examination of the styles employed by Picasso in his art during the years of World War I, and also discusses the costumes by Picasso for the ballet Parade in 1917.
Picasso Looks at Degas, Hardback (June 2010)
The great Spanish painter and sculptor Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) exhibited a lifelong fascination - some might say 'obsession' - with the work and personality of French artist Edgar Degas (1834-1917). This title presents various instances of Picasso's direct responses to Degas' work, and challenging affinities between their oeuvres.
