"Not until the publication of the complete catalogue of his Cubist period shall we be able to comprehend the immense resources which Picasso poured into Cubism", wrote Robert Melville in 1939. Now, forty years later, comes this definitive catalogue of paintings, papiers collés and constructions. A sequel to "Picasso 1900-1906", the book contains over 1000 illustrations; historical and comparative picture material complements the catalogue raisonné, itself comprising 893 works, all reproduced and, for the first time, fully documented.
More than a catalogue, this is a comprehensive historical and critical reappraisal of Picasso's Cubism, which was a watershed in Western art after five hundred years dominated by perspective and the legacy of the Renaissance. Previously unknown works and studies, and works hitherto documented in the wrong chronological order, scattered over many volumes, or incorrectly linked to other periods of work are here assembled in their rightful places. The authors have been able to reconstruct sequences centred around such major paintings as the "Demoiselles d'Avignon" and the "Nude with Drapery", and even to reverse the accepted order of two of the periods of work on the papiers collés.
The close collaboration of Picasso himself with Pierre Daix, which extended over a quarter of a century, has contributed to make this the most original as well as the most comprehensive work of scholarship on Picasso's Cubism yet to appear.
