This book is the catalog for the current exhibition at the Frick Collection, which will later travel to the National Gallery in Washington.

It is not a complete Picasso drawing retrospective, since it only covers the first 30 years of the Spanish master's career - a somewhat arbitrary segmentation (1923 might have been a better decision, since it marked the last year of Picasso's so-called "return to classicism")- yet it is undoubtedly a gem of a book and it shows in all its depth and richness Picasso's virtuosity and inventiveness.

From the very early drawings by a fledgling artist (academic nude studies) to the revolutionary cubist figures and on to the Ingres-inspired pencils on paper of the late 1910's (a wonderful portrait of Vollard is an absolute knockout), we are treated to all the facets of a sizzling talent, with wonderful illustrations accompanied by an in-depth study of each work present in the show. The quality of the reproductions is outstanding and it is also worth noting that, among the hundreds of books published on Picasso, this is one of the very few that focuses on his works on paper (whether gouaches or drawings). Picasso, before being a great painter, was one of the greatest draftsmen in the history of art, along with da Vinci and Ingres, and for those who did not know that, this book will serve as a revelation.

Highly recommended as one of the best artbooks published in 2011, in my opinion.

Here is a book I wish was twice as long. The drawings are reproduced beautifully; what's best is that they are not drastically reduced in size (a common problem in books of artists' drawings).

selection of drawings is not so good.

I returned this item and already explained my reasons. Again, it was because I already have many books on Picasso and this one did not contain any new images of his better drawings. It was an OK book, but not one I really need.

This terrific catalog for a fine exhibition of Picasso's early drawings (1890-1921), mounted and shown by the Frick Collection in New York and the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC is worth having for several reasons. Going well beyond the wonderful drawings, pastels and gouaches in the exhibition, the book/catalog effectively demonstrates how gifted and versatile the artist was from his earliest childhood, with emphasis on the latter quality.

Picasso's first 30 years as an artist were marked by dramatic shifts of and style and approach and this show includes early academy studies, portraits of friends--sharp and soft-edged, pastel landscapes, harlequins, the evolution his cubist works, back to classic portraiture and representational drawing, back again to a modernist approach, the Fernande Olivier period and so on. There is overlap in these styles throughout the period covered and the overall impression for the viewer (this non-expert, at least) is of a mind ever moving at a fever pitch, constantly experimenting and/or trying the ideas of other artists, but turning the borrowed approach into something his own before moving on to whatever had come to the fore in his mind.

Picasso seems to have mastered all media, but certainly was a genius in draughtsmanship. There is a sureness of line in most of the works illustrating this book that shout that the man had total confidence when he was laying down a design on paper, canvas or whatever platform was available to him.

This is a wonderful book with excellent illustration and knowledgable commentary (largely free of art-speak) that explains much of the productivity and style(s) that were to follow in the next 50 years of the artist's life.
