9780679737254: The Success and Failure of Picasso

Booker Prize-winning author John Berger gives us a stunning critical assessment of Pablo Picasso: At the height of his powers, Picasso was the artist as revolutionary: breaking through the niceties of form in order to mount a direct challenge to the values of his time. At the height of his fame, he was the artist as royalty: incalculably wealthy, universally idolized—and wholly isolated.
 
Berger—one of this century’s most insightful cultural historians—trains his penetrating gaze upon this most prodigious and enigmatic painter and on the Spanish landscape and very particular culture that shaped his life and work. Writing with a novelist’s sensuous evocation of character and detail, and drawing on an erudition that embraces history, politics, and art, Berger follows Picasso from his childhood in Malaga to the Blue Period and Cubism, from the creation of Guernica to the painted etchings of his final years. He gives us the full measure of Picasso’s triumphs and unsparing reckoning of their cost—in exile, in loneliness, and in a desolation that drove him, in his last works, into an old man’s furious and desperate frenzy at the beauty of what he could no longer create.
