Throughout his life, Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) never stopped accumulating everyday objects and art objects. Superstitious, he believed that each thing, however banal, contained an inner being, a secret and magical soul that protected him. To these objects, where intimate life and emotional memories are intertwined, are added real fetishes. Their singular status is linked to the memory that the artist attaches to them, to the symbolic and imperceptible meaning that they conceal.
Through an illustrated gallery of these memorabilia - memories for himself, which have become memories for others - this book proposes to apprehend the "Being" of Picasso, by exploring a little-known facet of the artist - at once a sorcerer and a superstitious man - who drew on the heart of his intimacy in order to exercise his creative omnipotence.
