Un étranger nommé Picasso


Why was Picasso branded as an anarchist by the Police authorities on 18 June 1901, just two weeks before his first exhibition opened in Paris? Although the artist’s work has generated exponentially increasing numbers of exhibitions, studies and comments commensurate with his immense talent, paradoxically Picasso’s status as ‘a foreigner’ has been neglected. This book aims to explore the topic.
