Visiting Picasso by Elizabeth Cowling

Book Description

Containing previously unpublished, uncensored and on-the-spot observations of Picasso at home and in company, "Visiting Picasso" is a wonderfully vivid, spontaneous and lively record of Roland Penroses' many encounters with the artist and his family, friends and associates, from their first meeting in 1936 to the artists death in 1973. Over seventy photographs, many by Penroses' wife Lee Miller, illustrate the colourful cast of characters, including Dora Maar, Francoise Gilot, Jean Cocteau and Georges Braque, as well as artworks and events described.
