Picasso Project. PICASSO'S Paintings, Watercolors, Drawings and Sculpture. A Comprehensive Illustrated Catalogue 1885 - 1973. Nazi Occupation, 1940-1944. 440 pp., with ca. 1,000 b&w illustrations. 4to, cloth. San Francisco, Alan Wofsy Fine Arts, 2013.
This second edition of Nazi Occupation, 1940-1944 has 440 pages as opposed to 400 pages in the first edition of 1999, with 8 new color plates. There are many corrections, additions and revisions. Titles are made more descriptive and when a number of works in a series have the same title, they are numbered sequentially, to facilitate referencing a work with
the same title in the same chronological series. Some works were inadvertently omitted from the first edition, which had been included in Zervos or in the Musée Picasso catalogues. These are now included. A number of works formerly in the collection of Marie-Thérèse Walter, unknown to Zervos, were also not included in the first edition. These were first described and reproduced in the 1973 exhibition catalogue Une Collection Picasso by the Galerie Jan Krugier in Genève. Some of these have seen been subsequently resold at public auctions and the sales are noted.
Many entries have been updated in light of descriptions at public sales at the major auction houses.
