Pablo Picasso and the publishers Gustavo Gili: work and friendship
"Pablo Picasso and the publishers Gustavo Gili: work and friendship" aims to take an in-depth look at the ties of the artist with two generations of the Barcelona publishers. The history of this relationship, which has the love of books as a thread, took place in two stages. The first includes Gustau Gili Roig's contacts with Picasso between 1926 and 1930, which, despite everything, didn't end up in the form of a publishing project. The second one, started in 1956 by Gustau Gili Esteve and his wife, Anna Maria Torra, is defined by the ties of friendship with Pablo and Jacqueline Picasso and by the consolidation of a professional collaboration that culminated in exquisite editions such as "Tauromaquia" or "Art of bullfighting", by Pepe Illo, or "The burial of the count of Orgaz".

 

This monograph gathers together an important part of the series of artistic works by Picasso that make up the Gustau Gili and Anna Maria Torra Collection, engravings, drawings, illustrated books with dedications, acquired by the Museu Picasso of Barcelona in 2014, and a selection of the correspondence and personal photographs from the documentary collection donated in the same year by the Publisher Gustavo Gili.
