    Picasso (Paperback) His Life and Work. By Roland Penrose. University of California Press, , pp. Publication Date: Decem Picasso, his life and work by Roland Penrose; 6 editions; First published in ; Subjects: Biography, Artists; Places: France; People: Pablo Picasso ().

      This powerhouse of a book spans a dauntingly complicated time in Picasso’s life and in European history as well, taking us from World War I and Picasso’s adventures with Diaghilev and the Author: Jed Perl. In response to: Trompe l'Oeil from the December 3, issue. To the Editors. It would be a shame if, after such a warm, relaxing shower of highly favorable reviews of Life with Picasso, there were not something sharp and chill to tone up the Richardson’s article (December 3) performs that function, but with so much distortion that I sometimes wondered if we had read the same.

      Reading Life with Picasso exclusively as art history or feminist history would fulfill Picasso's cruel prophecy. The book's intellectual heft is in its art criticism, even as its emotional arc.   But, for a brief honeyed moment, Picasso chronicled his family life with Maya and Marie-Thérèse in portraits and drawings. Out of his four children, Picasso most frequently depicted Maya—no less a muse than her mother—continuing to portray her consistently for nine years, from her birth until , and off and on for years after that.
