Dora Maar, With and Without Picasso - A Biography
Dora Maar, With and Without Picasso - A Biography
Caws, Mary Ann

Two tears to back of dustjacket, with some wear to top of dustjacket, otherwise good secondhand condition.

Their relationship was stormy, and in 1943 reached a painful end. Dora was supported through the traumatic aftermath by her friend Jacques Lacan and went on to outlive Picasso by a quarter of a century. But almost nothing was known of her in those years, for she lived as a religious recluse, painting and writing poetry behind a veil of fiercely guarded privacy; 'after Picasso, only God', she once said. As a result, her story acquired an almost mythic tone. She was seen as the tragic muse, a woman forever shattered by the cruel genius Picasso. Mary Ann Caws tells a different story. This book places Dora Maar's time with Picasso in the scope of a life of ninety years. It talks not about a myth, but about a charismatic, deeply intelligent woman and artist whose recognition is long overdue.
