Catalogue published to accompany the exhibition at the Pace Gallery, New York.

'Picasso & Jacqueline: The Evolution of Style, features works by Pablo Picasso created in the last two decades of his life while living with his muse, and later, wife, Jacqueline Roque. With many works from the Picasso family and Jacqueline Roque’s estate on view to the public for the first time, plus loans from private collections and major museums including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the Centre Pompidou, Paris, this exhibition is the first to examine Picasso’s late transformation in style, as seen exclusively through the portraits of Jacqueline, his last and perhaps greatest love. Picasso & Jacqueline features painting, sculpture, works on paper, and ceramics, all depicting Jacqueline in a myriad of ways - from odalisque to bride - that would immortalize her arresting beauty.' (from the gallery's exhibition description).

The catalogue includes generous illustrations of the works in the exhibition and essays on this period of Picasso's life and work. Also included are historical photographs of Picasso and Jacqueline taken by David Douglas Duncan.
