Summary Pablo Picasso was an artist whose canvases became mirrors, weapons and a window on a bold, new world of eroticism and madness. One of the most charismatic and misunderstood figures of the 20th century. Biographer and close personal friend, John Richardson, reveals the three key themes that dominated Picasso's life and work. From his childhood fascination with the occult to his frustration over death, the messages beneath the paint are revealed.
