Je Suis le Cahier: The Sketchbooks of Picasso
Library Shelf Location 18.PICA
Publication Date 1986
Description At his death, Picasso left some 175 sketchbooks, filled with drawings produced over a period of more than sixty years. Unknown to even his closest friends, these sketchbooks contained an intimate record of the day-to-day working life of one of the indisputable giants of twentieth century art. That record has now been revealed in The Sketchbooks of Picasso, which brings together reproductions of more than 400 pages from the sketchbooks along with essays by leading scholars and friends of the artist. As John Russell has written: ‘They are amazing in the freshness and multiplicity of their ideas, the vigour and assurance with which those ideas are carried through, and their godlike variety of ambition. They deal directly or indirectly with almost every phase of Picasso’s career. . . a long life in miniature is secreted in those hundreds and hundreds of sketchbook pages’.
