Of the three volumes of A Life of Picasso that have been completed, I liked The Cubist Rebel, 1907-1916 best. John Richardson moves his focus around to see Picasso's life from many angles, much like a Cubist painting deconstructs reality into two dimensions representing all sides.
Of the three volumes of A Life of Picasso that have been completed, I liked The Cubist Rebel, 1907-1916 best. There is fine balance in his portrayal so that no element gets out of proportion. The scholarship involved with showing the connections between Picasso's lovers and his art during those years is most interesting, filled with many details I had not run across before. I was also pleased to be better informed.
This book is the second of three volumes of the artist's life.

A LIFE OF PICASSO: Vol. II: 1907-1917. Пользовательский отзыв - Kirkus. Richardson's engrossing second volume on Picasso lays bare the inceptions of Cubism, bringing to life the decadent milieu that surrounded the virile master who transformed the course of 20th- century. The currently revival of interest in Picasso's life and work goes beyond the art world. Though he may benefit from current interest in his subject, Richardson's work is no trendy undertaking.

The most remarkable thing about writing on Picasso, John Richardson observed at a recent panel discussion on artists’ biographies, was that no matter what you said about him, the opposite was also true. The list of contradictions that emerges from Richardson’s writings on the artist seems nearly endless. No less mercurial in life than on canvas, the painter could be tender and brutal, forthright and devious, charming and horrifying, trivial and astonishing. Picasso could be a daredevil and a coward, a loyal friend and an appallingly indifferent one, a playful companion and a cruel one.
