Vintage hardback coffee table book studying the oeuvre of Pablo Picasso. By Wilhelm Boeck and Jaime Sabartés, published in 1955. First edition, 524 pages.
"Picasso's art is one of the forces that have shaped our era. Today it no longer matters whether we approve or disapprove of his achievement; we should understand its historic significance. This book attempts to interpret the works of Picasso by means of a method of interpretation that has been developed for the great works of art of past ages. Its aim is to demonstrate that the creations of a living master can be judged by these same standards."
