Sample text

Even dancing naked on an island of light. Even being as sensitive as a musician and as strong as a horse. Even being blue. Or having another child: a year after Picasso paints this big, cheery canvas, another son – Claude – is born. 42 The j oy o f li v i n g , 1946 43 This century full of wars has been a nightmare. Picasso’s friends pester him to create new symbols of peace different from those associated with the famous Guernica. They all hope that the more people see the gentle lines of peace, the more they will commit to help it soar freely.

Colour reappears in his paintings. Life sweeps him along. For his huge collage, Women washing, Picasso even uses scraps of wallpaper that he’d thought of incorporating into Guernica. In life, death always brings transformation. 37 Girl w i t h b oat (M aya ), 1938 The best way to overcome barbarity 38 Marie-Thérèse is Maya’s mother. P o rt r a it o f M a r i e -T h É r È s e , 1937 must surely be to let the colours of life sing out. 39 However, 1939 is a year of despair. In€springtime, not long after the death of Picasso’s mother, the Spanish Republic is no more.

His work is considered ‘degenerate’ by the German authorities occupying France. But for those five years, Picasso keeps his oil lamp burning. He paints and paints and paints. C at s e iz i ng a b i r d , 1939 41 In 1945, when the war is over and France is liberated, la joie de vivre (the joy of living) bursts out. Once again, anything seems possible. Even dancing naked on an island of light. Even being as sensitive as a musician and as strong as a horse. Even being blue. Or having another child: a year after Picasso paints this big, cheery canvas, another son – Claude – is born.
