The Sculpture of Picasso, First Edition



The Sculpture of Picasso by Roland Penrose. New York: The Museum of Modern Art, 1967. First edition hardcover with no dust jacket. 231 pp. An art book on the sculpture of Pablo Picasso in chronological order from 1901 to 1963. For Picasso, the dialogue between painting and sculpture started when he was 10, while he was first studying art at La Coruña. During his free time at school, his interest for three-dimensional art materialized into tiny nativity figurines. Throughout his 60 year long career, he used all sorts of materials: clay, metal, bronze, discarded objects, paper and pieces of wood. He learned sculpture techniques thanks to his circle of sculptor friends, such as Basque artist Francisco “Paco” Durrio de Madrón, and embraced them while creating new forms of expression. NPT Books a division of N.P. Trent Antiques has a large collection of used and out of print books on art, architecture, decoration and antiques with a focus on 1st editions, signed and limited editions.
