This book stands out alone as a definitive reference dealing with Picasso's working life. The text is both authoritative and comprehensive,yet gripping, in its unfolding of the thinking and creative energy that was Picasso. The greatest jewel of this wonderful work surely lies in the superb quality of the photography and printing, faithfully reproducing colour form and detail of all his major works. This book is a "must have" for people who are interested in art, but perhaps more important, in getting an insight into one of the greatest influences in the development of visual expression,thinking and communication ever.

This is a book "that does exactly what it says on the tin". I particularly liked the format, which is compact and easy to handle.
This is an accessible book with clear text, copiously illustrated. It contains everything you would ever want to know about Picasso and his life and art. I would highly recommend "The Ultimate Picasso".
