Portrait of Picasso
Paperback book documenting Picasso's life. By Roland Penrose, published in 1957. First edition, 96 pages.
"It is now seventy-five years since Pablo Picasso was born in Malaga. He now lives at Cannes and the fame of his creative work is known throughout the world. It has been my purpose in this study to give a visual record of the life of Picasso by assembling portraits, sketches, photographs, and documents which have a direct bearing on the artist himself, his friends, his surroundings up to the present time."
