Picasso. Las mujeres de un genio
Picasso is one of the most prolific painters of all time. In Picasso, Las mujeres de un genio, Laura Corpa looks back over his life from his childhood in Malaga to his death in Mougins. The running theme in the account is the women he loved, who were fundamental to his work. However, the author also reveals his life in Paris and his relationship with other artists such as Braque, Matisse and Cocteau. In the end, the book provides the keys to understanding his most famous artworks, such as Guernica and The Young Ladies of Avignon.
The personalities in the Grandes personajes collection stand out for their quality as artists and human beings. They all live in the memory of Spanish-speakers but their repetition has also reached across the borders of their countries. Each biography is about the life and works of one of the personalities. The books include photographs, a footnote Spanish glossary, and another glossary in several languages at the end of the book. In addition, all of the texts are accompanied with a variety of activities and a CD in which the text is read out.
