Picasso was an extremely prolific artist, but there remain many rarely seen works that are held in private collctions. This book presents 250 such paintings, which were all shown in an exhibition at Milan's Palazzo Reale in Autumn, 2001, to open up the artist's personal legacy to a greater section of the public. The exhibition did not tour, so the book now offers a way to see these masterworks. They include oil paintings, aquatints, prints, sculpture and terracottas, as well as textiles such as the ballet Russe costumes Picasso created for Diaghilev.
Picasso was an extremely prolific artist, and there remain many little-known, rarely seen works that have been held in private collections.

It is alive with splashes of brilliant color and is a distinguished addition to any art bookshelf, featuring 300 illustrations that cover oil paintings, aquatints, prints, sculpture, and terracottas, as well as textiles such as the Ballet Russe costumes Picasso created for Diaghilev.
