A Good Introduction At A Great Price.
on 3 November 2003
This book is an excellent introduction to the life and work of Picasso. It is about half text and half illustrations. The text is accessible and easy for someone with a casual interest in art to follow. The main text is a cronological account of Picasso's work. This is interspersed with shorter sections focusing on specific subjects (e.g. his sculpture and his posters).
Readers interested in a detailed and rigorous academic analysis will prefer a more comprehensive book, but for people looking for an accessible introduction it can't be beaten, particularly given the low price.
