Description - The Surrealist Picasso by Anne Baldassari

Between 1924 and 1934, Picasso's oeuvre developed dramatically. During this decade, the artist maintained a complex relationship with the burgeoning and hugely influential Surrealist movement. While his work eventually took a different direction, his overall craft was undeniably influenced by this artistic movement. This volume presents an integrative analysis of the ensemble of Picasso's artistic creation during the Surrealist period. The thematic texts reveal the extraordinary wealth of Picasso's work during this time, beginning with a study of his research on theater and ballet from 1914-23 and subsequently examining Picasso's position in various creative domains including painting, sculpture, and works on paper. The comprehensive account concludes with a study of the body of Picasso's work from 1935-40. These formative years, during which civil war raged in Picasso's native Spain, laid the groundwork for the increasingly political content of his later works. A detailed, fully illustrated chronology at the end of the book places this crucial period in its teeming intellectual and historical context.
