Picasso’s Sketchbook



“In the first weeks of 1907, Picasso took a slim little book – a since-battered leather wallet that was nothing much to begin with – and began to confide, day by day, his ideas about what could be done with the human figure. Sometimes the image was flat, wiry, schematic. Sometimes it had sculptural volumes, with plenty of ins and outs where ins and outs were called for. Only very rarely was a line crossed out, or a second thought as much as hinted at.” from an article in The New York Times
