THE RELIGIOUS ART OF PABLO PICASSO. Jane Daggett Dillenberger and John Handley. University of California Press, Berkeley, 2014. 126 pp. with 66 ills. (33 col.). 26 x 19 cm. LC 2013-35786 ISBN 9780520276291 In English.
Publisher's description: This is the first critical examination of Pablo Picasso's use of religious imagery and the religious import of many of his works with secular subject matter. Though Picasso was an avowed atheist, his work employs themes of spirituality-and, often, traditional religious iconography. In five engagingly written, accessible chapters, the authors address Picasso's cryptic 1930 painting of the Crucifixion; the artist's early life in the catholic church, trained as a religious painter; elements of transcendence in Guernica; Picasso's fraught relationship with the church, including a commission to paint murals for the War and Peace Chapel in France in the 1950s; and the centrality of religious themes and imagery in bullfights, subject of countless Picasso drawings and paintings.
