Product description

From Booklist

An unexpected collusion of sorts with the recent release of the movie Surviving Picasso (starring Anthony Hopkins) is French journalist Herscher's portrait of the artist as a gourmand. Despite the title, she tracks Picasso's life, warts and all, in three geographic segments--Spain, Paris, and the Midi--without an overt emphasis on food. Friendships, artistic growth, and romantic liaisons are the main courses; if capped by memories and notes on meals, so much the better. Familiar names--Apollinaire, the Steins, Cocteau, et al.--and familiar works parade through this heavily illustrated reverie. And so do more than 50 recipes, all symbolic of the artist's ties to three locales. A feast for the eyes but not necessarily for the stomach. Barbara Jacobs
