ABSTRACT
The article discusses scholarly studies published on the work of artist Pablo Picasso. The author states that there are few books which provide useful overviews of Picasso's artistic achievement including "Picasso: Fifty Years of His Art," by Alfred Barr, which the author believes is the best introduction to Picasso's work. The author explains that the biography which has most influenced the public's view of Picasso is "Picasso: Creator and Destroyer," by Arianna Stassinopoulos. The article also discusses speculations on Picasso's life, the stage play "Picasso's Closet" written by Ariel Dorfman, and the sexual psychology within the play.
