This publication accompanies a large-scale retrospective of the artists work, the first to unite the collections of the Kunstmuseum Basel and the Fondation Beyeler, assembled with donations from the private collections of the above patrons. The Picassos Are Here! allows us to perceive astonishing correlations between the artists many periods, from the Blue Period to Cubism and the Surrealist-influenced paintings of the 1930s, to the postwar and late works.
