Picasso, I Want My Face Back PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Picasso, I Want My Face Back free pdf Art, landscape and memory are interwoven strands in the fabric of Grace Nichols' latest collection, "Picasso, I Want My Face Back". The book opens with a long poem in the voice of Dora Maar, who, as Picasso's muse and mistress, was the inspiration for his iconic painting, "The Weeping Woman". The poems are almost interlocking reflections that echo the cubistic manner of the painting and allow us to enter the shifting surfaces of Dora Maar's mind and her journey of self reclamation.
