‘A stimulating and stringent work by an exceptional critic’ – The Sunday Telegraph

‘Brisk, discerning and full of good observations’ – The Observer

‘A scholarly work, full of acute observation . . . very well illustrated’ – The Artist

‘A bold stance against which any student of Picasso must formulate his own opinions’ – Arts Review

Of the many books about Picasso, most have been written as celebrations of his creative abundance. Timothy Hilton has a more challenging purpose: to define his achievement and his place within twentieth-century art.
