The author, Picassos grandson Olivier Widmaier Picasso, spoke extensively with relatives, friends, and contemporaries of the artist, and discovered unknown information about Picassos life. Correcting previous portrayals of the artist which have been highly critical of his personal relationships and treatment of women, this book offers a balanced and sensitive account of his life. Olivier Widmaier Picasso - whose grandmother was the artists muse and lover Marie-Therese - answers allegations about everything from the artists sexuality and relation to money and politics, to the feuding over his estate, and the authors own handling of the artists legacy. This compassionate, penetrating biography, which includes never before published family photographs, offers a unique perspective as it explores both sides of the coin that is fame and talent.
