Picasso: Minotaurs and Matadors

Curated by noted Picasso biographer John Richardson, this exhibition catalogue examines the intersection of Picasso's bullfighting imagery with the mythological (and biographical) compositions of the 1930's.
Including works dating from 1897 to 1972, this fully illustrated catalogue presents a career-long survey of Picasso's engagement with ancient bullfighting and mythological narratives and includes essays by noted Picasso scholars Michael FitzGerald and Gertje Utley.
