This luxurious publication presents the sculptures of Picasso photographed by Brassai, one of the most important photographers of the 20th century. Includes an insightful text written for this work in 1948 by Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler, a major Picasso art dealer. Brassai met Picasso in 1932 when he was commissioned to take a series of pictures of the artist's studio; between 1932 and 1946, Brassai photographed all of Picasso's sculpted works. This long-term working relationship led to a fruitful exchange between the two artists on the respective nature of photography and sculpture, which is reflected in this volume.
