La Revue 2015 — Picasso in the Studio

This special issue of the revue reveals rare and previously unpublished photographs illustrating Pablo Picasso in his studio and the work itself in progress.

Each chapter is devoted to a particular technique examined through rare photographs of the artist alongside texts by noted historians, and is followed by an interview with contemporary artists such as Miquel Barceló, George Condo, Sheila Hicks, William Kentridge, Jeff Koons, Robert Longo, and Tatiana Trouvé. They have been invited to comment on the related technique in Picasso’s work, and in their own work as well as on their relationship to the artist. The revue also highlights Picasso’s relationship with former Cahiers d’Art publisher Christian Zervos through the reproduction of key articles published during the artist’s lifetime.
With an eye toward fleshing out this connection more fully, Cahiers d’Art commissioned a new lithograph by William Kentridge, which was produced in conjunction with the 2015 special issue. The lithograph, Unremember Me, 2015, was printed in France on Japanese paper, and in Cahiers d’Art tradition inserted in the revue.
