Why We Love This

Exploring what it means to be an artist in the 20th century, critic and scholar Philippe Dagen approaches Picasso as a product of his situation and time, in the broadest sense of the term. Refusing to confine himself to his studio or the small artistic community in Paris, Picasso responded forcefully to world affairs, giving pictorial and sculptural form to the passions and events he witnessed around him. Dagen's original exploration of Picasso's techniques, materials, and images shows how the artist both allowed modernity to infiltrate his work and at the same time reacted against it, in the process creating perhaps the most diverse body of work in the entire history of art.
