About the Item

Picasso, a library or coffee table book, 1955, First Edition, Germany. The cover design was made especially for this book by Pablo Picasso, July 1955. "Picasso's art is one of the forces that have shaped our era. Today it no longer matters whether we approve or disapprove of his achievement; we should understand his historic significance. This book attempts to interpret the work of Picasso by means of a method of interpretation that has been developed for the great works of art of past ages. Its aim is to demonstrate that the creations of a living master can be judged by these same standards." Wilhelm Boeck. Book: 'Perfect-bound', hard-cover in black and white. Dust-Jacket: Cover design by Pablo Picasso.
