Rate this:
Nearly a century after his arrival in the French capital as an unknown Spanish teenager, Pablo Picasso's presence still can be felt in Paris. Four walking tours follow the painter from the gaslit garrets of fin-de-siècle Montmartre to the Left Bank quarter where he sat out the Nazi Occupation. Both art book and travel guide, this pocketable volume identifies the sites where Picasso created some of his best-known masterpieces and describes his celebrated circle of friends, among them Gertrude Stein, Henri Matisse, Jean Cocteau, and Coco Chanel. The tours are enhanced by recommendations for conveniently located dining at many of Picasso's favorite haunts: elegant brasseries off the Champs-Élysées, charming bistros in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, and the legendary cafés of Montparnasse.
