The Cahiers d'Art exhibition space on Rue du Dragon in Paris is small. From the street, one can peer through the front window and see the entire gallery in a quick glance. Of course, size does not always determine worth or influence; as a legendary art gallery/publisher and revue, the Cahiers d'Art legacy is built upon works that celebrate a rarefied and highly lauded set of western artists.
Their last revue explored the working life of Alexander Calder in Paris, and their latest offering, Picasso in the Studio, revisits the work of the Spanish master artist and illuminates it with rare, previously unpublished images of his life at the canvas.
Cécile Godefroy and Vérane Tasseau serve as guest editors on the seven-chapter revue, which also features a rich collection of images from the 30s to 50s by Yves Macinet, Edward Quinn and Lee Miller. Worth special mention are the images presented with permission from the Archives Olga Ruiz-Picasso of the artist at in his sculpture studio in Boisgeloup.
