Picasso Vu Par Brassai
Good condition, slightly damaged. This book, published in 1987 by the Museum, has a wonderful collection of black and white photographs taken by the Brassai — a Transylvanian-born journalist turned emigre photographer in Paris — of Picasso, Picasso’s works (including sculpture and art), and Picasso’s studio. Brassai (1899-1984), to whom Picasso turned as his personal photographer, is also world renowned for his photos of Paris where he engaged in multiple interests in art, literature, sculpture and cinema. Brassai also collaborated in other ways with Picasso, the painter and sculptor, including through various dialogues the two mutually admiring artists held, glimpses of which come through in the pages of this book. nnBrassai’s photographer’s eye, which makes this book a visual feast, is the subject of comment by other admirers in this book, including Henry Miller.
