About This Item

New York: Liveright in cooperation with the Museum of Modern Art, 1970. Hardbound. VG/G, binding very good shape, shelf wear to bottom of case and block, dust jacket faded with some tears, pages starting to yellow. Brown cloth boards, silver embossed lettering, Sepia photo on DJ, 122 pp, numerous photos and over 80 of Picasso's works, some in color, most BW. Signed. Gertrude Stein on Picasso is the perfect book for Picasso lovers, Gertrude Stein devotees, or art and literature enthusiasts in general. It is certainly the most readable and perhaps the most illuminating of the many books on Picasso, the most significant and least predictable of twentieth century painters...[the book] is the first complete collection of this literary giant's works on her life-long friend Picasso. Here are Stein's near-classic treatise on the development of Picasso's style, two illuminating "word portraits" of Picasso the man, and notes on Picasso recently recovered from the unpublished Stein notebooks. Includes laid-in photographs and an inscription from the author to Harold and Virginia Knapik (friends of Stein's partner, Alice Toklas).
