Pablo Picasso's defining role in the development of 20th century American art is the subject of this absorbing study, which accompanies a traveling exhibition that opens at the Whitney Museum of Art. The authors juxtapose works by Picasso with the paintings, sculptures, and drawings created in response to his work by a diverse group of his contemporaries and successors, including Stuart Davis Arshile Gorky, Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollock, David Smith, and Roy Lichtenstein, among others. A comprehensive chronology tracks the accessibility of Picasso's work in the United States between 1911 and 1957
