Editorial Reviews“…highly important catalogue which provides a detailed history of each work in the show.”
—The New York Times
“… long after the show has closed this volume will stand as a remarkable guide to a glorious collection.”
—The New Republic
“… remarkable on every level: in the quality and importance of art, in the intelligence and originality of the epoch of thesis and themes, in the psychological and aesthetic implications of the Picasso story. It balances poignantly the visual and the verbal in artistic cadences rarely seen in an age of excesses.”
—Asia Intelligence Wire: The Economic Times
“Researchers examining the history of specific Picasso works in the Met's collection will find this book most useful, although this catalogue will also interest general readers.”
“The catalogue’s strength, its usefulness to Picasso scholars and its sheer length, lies in the depth and range of cross-departmental co-operation that brings in entries from eight curators, five conservators, five research scientists, and a further eight researchers."
