Modeled on the allegorical medieval bestiary, this catalogue examines the iconographic conventions and personal concerns reflected in Picasso's depictions of animals, presenting ten substantial essays that discuss the symbolism of bulls, horses, birds, monkeys, minotaurs and other creatures in the artist's oeuvre as well as the cultural values embodied in representations of the animals throughout art history. Includes reproductions of some 130 paintings, drawings, prints and other works by Picasso (1881-1973) juxtaposed with illustrations of related animal images drawn from such varied sources as ancient Roman mosaics, 13th-century illuminated manuscripts and 17th-century Dutch still lifes.
