Ocaña, Maria Teres et al. PICASSO: Landscapes 1890 - 1912. 342 pp. with 221 color and 100 b&w illustrations. Folio, cloth. New York, Little Brown, 1995.
This first monograph devoted to Picasso's little-known early landscape paintings is based on a landmark exhibiton in Barcelona put together by the Museu Picasso (Barcelona). Drawn from museums and private collections around the world, these paintings of Spanish vistas were painted before the advent of Cubism in 1912. They document the way Picasso built on the formal innovations of French landscape painters, and reveal the influence of his childhood in Malaga on his landscape paintings. With over 300 illustrations (220 in color), and essays by notable art historians and experts, including Pierre Daix and Christoper Green.
