PICASSO: THE LAST YEARS
When Pablo Picasso was living in Mougins, on the French Riviera, he asked his friend Mariano Miguel Montanes to come and live with him to help him out as a secretary. From this time on, Miguel became the assistant and confident of the great painter and his wife Jacqueline. Years later, Miguel’s son, Alberto, discovered his father’s diary from this important period. Thanks to this journal, we are able to enter for the first time the day to day life of the most important artist of the 20th century. Picasso’s way of living, working, his friends and habits - the text brings to life the energy, generosity, and true originality of the Great Master. Alberto Miguel Montanes writes the introduction.
