Description
From his earliest years Pablo Picasso was a passionate student of the European painting tradition, and was naturally drawn to the Spanish masters Velázquez and Goya, although Rembrandt, Delacroix, Ingres, Manet, and Cézanne were also important artistic heroes. Picasso repeatedly pitted himself against these masters, taking up their signature themes, techniques, and artistic concerns in audacious paintings of his own. Sometimes his "quotations" were direct, other times highly allusive. And always he made the implicit case that it was he in the 20th century who most forcefully reinvigorated the European tradition. Heavily illustrated with 150 color plates reproducing works by Picasso and those who inspired him, this book showcases the technical dexterity, independence, and vitality of Picasso's creative processes as he transformed the art of the past into, as he described it, "something else entirely."
