Landscape was always part of Pablo Picasso’s body of work, from his training as a young adolescent capable of spending weeks at a time in the Andalusian and Catalonian countryside drawing hills, trees, and farms right up to the monumental Landscape of 1972, one of the last paintings he created.

Picasso was attached to his landscapes. The suggestion that landscape was incongruous, outlawed, or indeed anachronistic in a body of work so poignantly human, so entirely of the twentieth century, did not come from him. Picasso exhibited, published, and commented on his landscapes, and at least 20 appeared regularly in retrospective exhibitions held during his lifetime and in the monographs and articles devoted to him.

Laurence Madeline discusses the role of landscape in Picasso’s work, analyzing key works and presenting years of research and thought that has culminated in Picasso Landscapes: Out of Bounds.
