Edited by Lynda Morris and Christoph Grunenberg, with contributions by Piotr Bernatowicz, et al. This book explores the “politically and socially engaged” Picasso, who was a primary member of the Peace Movement, and whose Dove of Peace became their symbol (from the dust jacket). The selected works and illuminating text demonstrate how dedicated Picasso was to various causes surrounding conflict and injustice. From the dust jacket: “Picasso’s political commitment and its implications for his work can be seen as one of the last undiscovered territories in the study of the artist…Alongside masterworks related to the themes of war and peace from the 1940s onwards, this richly illustrated book features posters, prints, drawings, ceramics and an extensive range of ephemera.”
