Picasso’s Spanish text in the Reading Club

The session for the Textos españoles: 1894-1968 (Spanish Texts 1894-1968 ) by Pablo Picasso with Malén Gual, Curator of the museum, was a delight.  It was a unique occasion in the Reading Club in which we had the pleasure of completing with images by the painter, some of his texts that demanded so, with such strength.

Coberta del llibre "Textos españoles: 1894-1968"

The poetry of Picasso, surrealist, nostalgic (of a Spain that no longer existed), obsessed with food, tender but also luxurious, filled with old words and phrases, highly influenced by Góngora but also by his contemporaries (such as Alberti or Breton), was a way in which the creative force of the artist found a way out when, for one reason or another, he found himself in a moment, if notat a still-point, at least doubtful, in his paintings.  Many times he would focus on the same topics: the bull, the guitar, Sabartés. And always as a manifestation of creative freedom.

We will continue, in the last session of this course (how time flies!) with No soy yo. Autobiografía, performance y los nuevos espectadores (I’m not me.  Autobiography, performance and new spectators), by Estrella de Diego.

    Me hubiera gustado asistir a esa interesante sesión del Club de Lectura, pues pocos son los estudios que han tratado sobre Picasso poeta. Rafael Inglada, como bien sabéis, es el investigador y editor de “Textos españoles 1894-1968” de Pablo Picasso, y me gustaría dejar aquí pistas o información sobre su trabajo, que puede consultarse en el siguiente blog: http://rafaelinglada.blogspot.com.es/2008/02/bio-bibliografa.html , y también en una nota de prensa de cuando se presentó el mencionado libro: http://www.diariosur.es/20061023/cultura/investigador-rafael-inglada-reune_200610231831.html . Comentar también que existe otro interesante libro sobre el tema, “Picasso poète”, de Androula Michaël, editado por Beaux-Arts de Paris.
