An anthology of Pablo Picasso's statements about art

Every page explodes with curt, outrageous aphorisms that confounded one's comfortableidees recues. Lipchitz maintains that Picasso refused to talk seriously about art--'Don't talk to the driver' was his favorite phrase when conversation got heavy; but nothing could be more penetrating than his jokes, more devastating that his pronunciamentos. --Rackstraw Downes,New York Times Book Review

Picasso is amazingly lucid and literate in what he says about himself and his colleagues, more so, in fact, than his explicators. --Douglas Davis,Newsweek

It is very good news that Dore Ashton's excellent anthology of Picasso's statements on art is once again in print. Together, the texts she has very judiciously selected and effectively translated give us a vivid picture both of the artist and of his wonderfully original, provocative thinking about art. Every student of 20-century art should read this book, and I for one intend to make sure that all of my students read it. --Theodore Reff,Professor of Art History, Columbia University


Dore Ashton's books includeA Joseph Cornell Album, Picasso on Art, A Critical Study of Philip Guston, A Fable of Modern Art, The New York School, Noguchi East and West, andA Reading of Modern Art. She lives in New York City.
