Conversations with Picasso offers a remarkable vision of both Picasso and the entire artistic and intellectual milieu of wartime Paris, a vision provided by the gifted photographer and prolific author who spent the early portion of the 1940s photographing Picasso's work. Brassai carefully and affectionately records each of his meetings and appointments with the great artist, building along the way a work of remarkable depth, intimate perspective, and great importance to anyone who truly wishes to understand Picasso and his world.


"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




Meeting with Picasso this morning. The metro is crowded and buses are rare: I prefer to walk. 最初のページを読む

A must for Picasso fans 1999/11/26

This is quite simply a wonderful book, and a splendid new translation of a great classic about the Paris art world during the 30s and 40s. Brassai was a witty, wry observer of Paris life and an excellent writer as well as photographer. The episodes he captures of Picasso's life are irreplaceable, often hysterical--and not recounted in other, stuffier books on the great modern artist. Highly recommended for art lovers. A pleasure to read

A Revealing View of a Great Genius 2004/1/15

To dismiss this wonderfully acute book as light because it is anecdotal would be a serious error. Brassai not only knew Picasso when; he was also an artist whom Picasso admired. Brassai's is a privileged vision, and he notes Picasso's many foibles--some of them large--as well as many of his strengths as artist and person. Until I read this book, I was unaware of just how selfishly Picasso treated even those he considered friends and lovers. But, in reading Brassai, I also learned that Picasso was intellectually voracious, a man who read an entire box of demanding books each week--on top of his work as an artist and his assiduous, but very often misconceived, efforts to be a husband and father. The only other writers who knew Picasso as well as Brassai are quite probably Fernande Olivier (earlier) and John Richardson (later). Richardson writes much more elegantly than Brassai (even if you read Brassai in the original French)--and Richardson's excellent ongoing three-volume biography of Picasso is turning out to be the gold standard--but he is no more perceptive than Brassai. For the best view of the younger Picasso on the make in Paris, I'd go with Brassai. If you want to "know" Picasso, Brassai is a must-read.

This book allows us the remarkable opportunity of visiting Picasso in his studio (during the Nazi occupation of Paris) words can express the charm of Brassai's accomplishment......through these conversations an exciting presence of art in reality is experienced.... this book has been an important part of my library since it was first published over forty years ago (as "Picasso and Company") re-released with a new remains magical.

A more vivid, if more focussed, picture of aspects of Picasso's personality 2011/4/20

Conversations With Picasso is at least as good as the more anecdotal parts of Richardson's indispensable magnum opus and offers a more vivid, if more focussed, picture of aspects of Picasso's personality. The book, of course, is also about Brassai, and I didn't appreciate that he was such a polymath. Among other things, this book prompts me to explore his drawings. And of the notable photographers, were there any as literate?

Conversations with PicassoI knew Brassai was a great photographer of Paris at night but I had no idea he was really well educated about literature and art, painted and drew, and met with Picasso as an equal discussing both their art works, art history, styles in painting as Brassai photographed Picasso's paintings and sculptures. This book is just like hanging out with the two of them, before, during and after WWII -- a really fun time with two very smart guys -- the book will send you to the internet looking for some of the artists they are talking about, like Hokusai, a Japanese painter I had never heard of -- Brassai told Picasso he had done some very large paintings, which was news to Picasso. Relaxed and fascinating reading.
