Picasso, the Minotaur
Universally adored, Picasso dazzled with his genius both the artists he worked with and those close to him, his friends and the women in his life. But this irresistible hold is just as devastating. From the earthquake of 1884, when little Pablo petrifiedly witnessed the birth of his sister, to his last years, when he became a demigod, Sophie Chauveau paints a stunning portrait of the two faces of Picasso. A consecrated monster who resolutely plunges into a labyrinth whose walls he has shaped, creating without respite a titanic work that seems never to end.
