Picasso: A Biography free pdf A biography of Pablo Picasso by Patrick O'Brian, the author of the Aubrey-Maturin series. Enormously productive and hugely successful, Picasso continues to attract public interest. This text explores the life of this awe-inspiring artist. O'Brian was a close friend and a neighbour of Picasso's and the book reflects the closeness of their friendship. The man that emerges from the pages is full of contradictions - hard yet tender, mean yet generous, affectionate but cold, professing communism but retaining an essentially Catholic mentality and private despite his relish of fame. The biography fully appreciates the distinctly Mediterranean origins of Picasso's character and art. Sex and money, eating and drinking, friends and quarrels, comedies and tragedies, suicides and wars tumble over each other in the vast chaos of Picasso's experience, He was "a man almost as lonely as the sun, but one who glowed with much the same fierce, burning life".
