Description
Drawing was essential to the art of Pablo Picasso, generally acknowledged as one of the greatest draftsmen of the 20th century. Spotlighting 74 works with large color plates and additional related images, this book follows the dazzling development of Picasso's drawing practice from the precocious academic exercises of his youth (the first drawing here, from a statuette of Hercules, was executed when Picasso was only 9) to his renewal of classicism in his virtuoso output of the early 1920s. An essay by Susan Grace Galassi provides a detailed study of Picasso's drawing practice and explores his interest in the Old Masters, and Marilyn McCully considers the early critical responses to Picasso's drawings, together demonstrating how drawing served as an essential means of invention and discovery for the artist.

"The research is impeccable and the writing style cogent. Each entry is meticulously documented with fascinating histories, numerous large-format color photographs, and comparative illustrations with notes."—Choice
