Picasso Bon Vivant
Hardcover ISBN: 0847819698
Food mixed with art for Picasso - he created ceramic plates with fish on them; he drew with wine on cafe table paper; he captured portraits of himself and the people around him in cafe settings; and he and his friends designed special menus and wall art for their favorite gathering places. Picasso, Bon Vivant tells the fascinating stories behind the artist's favorite meals, from the game he cooked as a youth in the Catalan hills, to the specialties of Els Quatre Gats in Barcelona, to the dinners made by his wife Jacqueline in the South of France. Over 50 recipes present the foods that inspired Picasso, while 140 photographs and drawings present his art, and evoke the spirit of his boisterous gatherings and valued friendships with artistic and intellectual luminaries of the twentieth century, including Gertrude Stein, Georges Braque, and Guillaume Apollinaire.
