Pablo Picasso

(1881-1973)

Pablo Picasso is a name that everyone knows, whether they are an artist or not. Picasso is one of the greatest and most influential artists of all time. He is the father of Cubism and helped explore and evolve various other artistic styles. Unlike many other artists, Picasso continued to develop and innovate until the end of his life 1973. Picasso oversaw the recreation of three of his studio sketchbooks dated from April to October, 1964. This album is titled “Le Goût Du Bonheur (The Taste of Happiness): A Suite of Happy, Playful, and Erotic Drawings.” The following are excerpts from the introduction of the album:

 

This is the sole edition of re-creations that will ever be made of these hitherto unpublished drawings and three publishers have collaborated in its creation

Harry N. Abrams, Inc., New York,
Éditions Cercle d’Art, Paris
Carl Schünemann Verlag, Bremen

The combined edition has been limited to 1998 Albums for the entire world, and these have been divided into three parallel but separate editions, one for each of the participating publishers, and each separate edition has been numbered from 1 to 666.

The recreations in this Album were printed in the Fall of 1970 in the studios of Guenther Dietz, Munich, under the personal supervision of Pablo Picasso. They are the exact size of the original drawings, and were produced through a unique process that employs the same type of materials as used by the artist, instead of the usual printing inks. Grease crayon, lithographic tusche, lead pencil, and charcoal are among the artist’s materials used in making the re-creations in the Album.
