Published by Cahiers d’Art. 66 pages. 41 drawings reproduced from the originals. 42 x 30 cm. Edition limited to 1200 copies. Full-page illustrations. Also known as "Carnets de Royan". This series reproduces works made in Royan from 30/05/1940 to 22/08/1940. The end of the book is composed of studies created in Paris and dated 19/02/1942 - Picasso fled Paris in September 1939, because he fears bombing, and settles in Royan. From the beginning of 1940, he rented a workshop on the 3rd floor of the villa "Les Voiliers" which dominates the port. This notebook belongs to this period of work. Picasso finally returned to Paris in August 1940, Royan being forbidden to foreigners.

About Pablo Picasso

A prolific and tireless innovator of art forms, Pablo Picasso impacted the course of 20th-century art with unparalleled magnitude. Inspired by African and Iberian art and developments in the world around him, Picasso contributed significantly to a number of artistic movements, notably Cubism, Surrealism, Neoclassicism, and Expressionism. Along with Georges Braque, Picasso is best known for pioneering Cubism in an attempt to reconcile three-dimensional space with the two-dimensional picture plane, once asking, “Are we to paint what’s on the face, what’s inside the face, or what’s behind it?” Responding to the Spanish Civil War, he painted his most famous work, Guernica (1937), whose violent images of anguished figures rendered in grisaille made it a definitive work of anti-war art. “Painting is not made to decorate apartments,” he said. “It’s an offensive and defensive weapon against the enemy.” Picasso’s sizable oeuvre includes over 20,000 paintings, prints, drawings, sculptures, ceramics, theater sets, and costume designs.
