Books Info:

The Religious Art of Pablo Picasso free pdf This is the first critical examination of Pablo Picasso's use of religious imagery and the religious import of many of his works with secular subject matter. Though Picasso was an avowed atheist, his work employs spiritual themes--and, often, traditional religious iconography. In five engagingly written, accessible chapters, Jane Daggett Dillenberger and John Handley address Picasso's cryptic 1930 painting of the Crucifixion- the artist's early life in the Catholic church- elements of transcendence in Guernica- Picasso's later, fraught relationship with the church, which commissioned him in the 1950s to paint murals for the Temple of Peace chapel in France- and the centrality of religious themes and imagery in bullfighting, the subject of countless Picasso drawings and paintings.
