(B&W plates) Memoir by a Spanish artist/poet who first met Picasso in Barcelona in 1899, when they were both 18. "For the next five years their lives were closely linked in Barcelona and Paris. In 1935 he joined Picasso in Paris to live in his household as friend and secretary -- a position he still occupies today." In his role as Picasso's secretary/administrator, he organized the artist's papers and books, and was also responsible for arranging his exhibitions; the two remained close until Sabartés's death in 1968. (The book is illustrated with eight portraits of Sabartés, done by Picasso over a period of forty years.) . (Inventory #: 22415)
