"Read this book if you want to understand me." — Picasso

First edition, first impression. Signed by Picasso on the dedication page, and inscribed by Brassai on the half-title: "Pour Maud Leclerc, avec toute son amitié, Brassai. Èze-village, 27 Dec. 1964." Brassaï, who photographed much of Picasso's work in the 1940s, here builds an intimate portrait of Picasso himself, recording each of their meetings with minute detail, and also offering an insight into the lives of the artistic and intellectual milieu in wartime Paris.
