Henry Miller called Brassaï (born Gyula Halasz) "The Eye of Paris." As a photographer, journalist, and author of photographic monographs and literary criticism, he had an uncanny ability to capture the Paris art world of the mid-20th century. Conversations with Picasso, originally published in 1964, is a collection of Brassaï's memoirs, resurrected from scraps of paper he stored in a huge vase each night after his talks with the famous Spanish painter, whose work he photographed from 1932 to 1962. In keeping with the lively bohemian spirit that so characterized Pablo Picasso's milieu, Brassaï wrote these notes in a vivid, conversational style, and they are now vignettes, of a sort, from a theatrical time capsule. Presented alongside the actual photographs he took during his visits with Picasso, Brassaï's anecdotes of the artist and his most intimate associates paint an unforgettable portrait of Picasso the master artist and the man. Sly humor and telling details embellish these accounts--in one particularly well-rendered scene, Picasso throws a temper tantrum over a lost flashlight--that vividly depict many of the artist's creative revelations, his insatiable curiosity, and his views on the art of his time, including that of the surrealists. One very strong image depicts Picasso, with brush in hand, using a palette made of newspaper. Confiscated by military censors due to the mere presence of World War II headlines, this photo represents one of the many wartime frustrations Picasso endured, including using a bathroom for a studio and secretly casting sculptures in scarce bronze at night. Underneath the worshipful posturing so prevalent in writings of the time, in which an everyday shopping list of paint colors is hailed as a prose poem, Brassaï offers an intimate chronicle full of loving detail of the impossible yet delightful enfant terrible. Entertaining, charming, light but truly satisfying fare. --A.C. Smith

Pressestimmen

"An astonishing document.... Brassai pitches his static, finished portraits of the master and friends into circumstantial, colloquial settings, a method that plunges the reader into the straitened, but vibrant, milieu of Picasso in Paris under Nazi Occupation....Brassai broke through the barrier between documentary and art." - James Malpas, Art Newspaper "Memorable and charming.... Brassai knew Picasso would be part of history, and he captures a slice of that history, intelligently and poetically, as it is being made." - San Diego Union-Tribune "Read this book if you want to understand me." - Pablo Picasso

Von Ein Kunde am 25. November 1999
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is quite simply a wonderful book, and a splendid new translation of a great classic about the Paris art world during the 30s and 40s. Brassai was a witty, wry observer of Paris life and an excellent writer as well as photographer. The episodes he captures of Picasso's life are irreplaceable, often hysterical--and not recounted in other, stuffier books on the great modern artist. Highly recommended for art lovers. A pleasure to read

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great seeing them and reading about them 23. Oktober 2015
Von r ploetz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Just puts you in Paris at that time (1940 - '45); fluently, thoughtfully written - you get to know not only Picasso, but the cast of other luminaries of the time. Of especial interest is Brassai discusses the sculptures Picasso asked/commissioned him to photograph - which are the same ones in the current MOMA exhibit. Great seeing them and reading about them. Good pics in the book too.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Revealing View of a Great Genius 14. Januar 2004
Von Avid Hiker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
To dismiss this wonderfully acute book as light because it is anecdotal would be a serious error. Brassai not only knew Picasso when; he was also an artist whom Picasso admired. Brassai's is a privileged vision, and he notes Picasso's many foibles--some of them large--as well as many of his strengths as artist and person. Until I read this book, I was unaware of just how selfishly Picasso treated even those he considered friends and lovers. But, in reading Brassai, I also learned that Picasso was intellectually voracious, a man who read an entire box of demanding books each week--on top of his work as an artist and his assiduous, but very often misconceived, efforts to be a husband and father. The only other writers who knew Picasso as well as Brassai are quite probably Fernande Olivier (earlier) and John Richardson (later). Richardson writes much more elegantly than Brassai (even if you read Brassai in the original French)--and Richardson's excellent ongoing three-volume biography of Picasso is turning out to be the gold standard--but he is no more perceptive than Brassai. For the best view of the younger Picasso on the make in Paris, I'd go with Brassai. If you want to "know" Picasso, Brassai is a must-read.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Scintillating conversations with Picasso! 9. Februar 2014
Von Frank J. Winters - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Brassai is a marvelous photographer - I knew this. But I didn't know that he was a wonderful, highly intelligent writer as well. His friendship with Picasso gave him access to the mind of the great painter. The book is an intimate portrait of PP as well as a reflection of the times. I heartily recommend this excellent book!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A more vivid, if more focussed, picture of aspects of Picasso's personality 19. April 2011
Von C. Amari - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Conversations With Picasso is at least as good as the more anecdotal parts of Richardson's indispensable magnum opus and offers a more vivid, if more focussed, picture of aspects of Picasso's personality. The book, of course, is also about Brassai, and I didn't appreciate that he was such a polymath. Among other things, this book prompts me to explore his drawings. And of the notable photographers, were there any as literate?
