1917 Picasso In Barcelona

Produced as part of the eponymous 2017 exhibition at the Museo Picasso in Barcelona, this book explores Picasso's longest interlude in Barcelona. Far from the oppressive climate in Paris, a city then at war, and from his Cubist circles, Picasso was able to work freely, searching for new forms of expression. This was a moment of stylistic transition in Picasso’s œuvre that would continue in the years immediately afterwards when classical sources alternated totally freely with the achievements of Cubism.
