"Brassai recorded his many meetings and appointments with the great Spanish artist from 1943 to 1946, resulting in Conversations with Picasso."--BOOK JACKET. "While the two artists shared the same milieu in the 1930s, it wasn't until the 1940s that they saw each other on a regular basis, when Brassai was asked to photograph Picasso's works. Brassai's recollection of these visits offer an intimate portrait of one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century: a Picasso who described Cezanne as his "one and only master"; a Picasso who throws a tantrum because he lost a flashlight; a Picasso who remained in Paris during the German Occupation."--BOOK JACKET. "At the same time, it would be a mistake to believe these conversations are only about Picasso. Instead, they treat everyone who comes into his life, the artistic and intellectual debates of the time, and the events of World War II from those in its midst. Paul Eluard, Andre Breton, Man Ray, Jean-Paul Sartre, Henri Matisse - all of these artists and writers, and more, make appearances in these pages."--BOOK JACKET.

"An astonishing document.... Brassai pitches his static, finished portraits of the master and friends into circumstantial, colloquial settings, a method that plunges the reader into the straitened, but vibrant, milieu of Picasso in Paris under Nazi Occupation....Brassai broke through the barrier between documentary and art." - James Malpas, Art Newspaper "Memorable and charming.... Brassai knew Picasso would be part of history, and he captures a slice of that history, intelligently and poetically, as it is being made." - San Diego Union-Tribune "Read this book if you want to understand me." - Pablo Picasso
