Pablo Picasso and Alberto Giacometti, each in their own way, deeply disrupted existing artistic codes and pushed the barriers of established aesthetic canons in the domains of painting and sculpture. This tome reveals their friendship and the little-known artistic dialogue between them on the subjects and questions central to their work. Richly illustrated, this volume establishes clear correlations in their artistic production and provides new insight into the Picasso and Giacometti ateliers through incisive essays from art historians, which draw on previously unpublished documents. An anthology of historical texts offers the intimate perspective of the master artists’ contemporaries including Man Ray, whose descriptions reveal fascinating portraits of the characters and working habits of his two friends. Serena Bucalo-Mussely is an assistant curator at the Fondation Giacometti and an art historian. Virginie Perdrisot is curator of sculptures at the Musée Picasso in Paris; she curated the museum’s exhibition Picasso: Sculptures in 2016.

Picasso: Tribal Art YVES LE FUR

Through works of art, photographs, and writings, this volume explores Picasso’s fascination with tribal art and the influences he repeatedly drew upon for his own oeuvre. “African art? I don’t know it.” With this provocative tone, Picasso tried to deny his relationship with art from outside of Europe. However, through hundreds of archival documents and photographs, this volume illustrates how tribal art from Africa, Oceania, the Americas, and Asia was a recurring source of inspiration for the artist.

Side-by-side comparisons illustrate the links between Picasso’s oeuvre and diverse tribal arts. In both, we find the same themes—nudity, sexuality, impulses, death, and more—along with parallel artistic expressions of those themes—such as disfiguration or destruction of the body. The volume is completed with a chronology of the relevant works and photographs of the artist in his studio. Yves Le Fur is director of the Heritage and Collections Department at the Musée du Quai Branly-Jacques Chirac and is a former curator at the National Museum of African and Oceanic Arts. He has organized a number of exhibitions on the art of Oceania, Africa, and the Americas.
