Huffington relates Picasso's early days including periods when he shuttled back and forth between the artistic challenges of Paris and the comfort of his Spanish roots and his later years as a wealthy, God-like figure in the art world. This is the second time I've read this book, and this time around the sociopathic nature of Picasso as he is portrayed here strikes me.

Picasso, Creator and Destroyer" by Arianna Huffington, shows the reader a person who was both a cosummate artist (the creator) and a terrible human being (the destroyer).

The Picasso of Huffington's book is a wretchedly flawed genius, sadistic and treacherous, a liar who betrayed friends and colleagues. It is, in short, the kind of story for which gossips-and scriptwriters-would kill. Attn: Author/Narrator If you have any queries please contact me at info19782 @ gmail.

Picasso: Creator and Destroyer. But with some tea, books, a couch, not much housework to do, I was very, very happy. I was, I admit, extremely lazy. Picasso's art enacted the violent passions and twisted energies of the twentieth century. The year 1895, when Pablo Picasso was thirteen, brought his initiation into two mysteries-the mystery of power and the mystery of death. On January 10 his seven-year-old sister, Conchita, died of diptheria. Picasso watched her deteriorate from the smiling little girl with the blonde curls whom he had so tenderly drawn to the ghost of herself that he drew just before death snatched her away.

Picasso: Creator and Destroyer is governed by a three-part argument, which goes roughly as follows: First, in his private life and professional dealings Picasso was a monster of megalomania and sadism, a mean-spirited and malicious despot ruled by the compulsion to ravish, enslave, and destroy everything he touched, and animated by a kind of cosmic hatred that found its particular focus. Finally, the reason Picasso has become such an icon of modernity is precisely that his brand of raging nihilism embodies the spirit of our age-a century characterized by massive destructiveness in the name of totalitarian ideologies.

Great book, lot of detail and covers all his life.
Picasso lived a long and busy intricate life and she manages to cover pretty much everything with stories and detail. Great job!!

Picasso the legendary artist and symbol of the 20th century is systematically picked apart through interviews with those unfortunate enough to have known him. The sadism, brutality and cruelty juxtaposed with the artist of undeniable genius and creativity is a story of a man walking on the edge of insanity and insecurities throughout most of his life. The book is tedious in places with its highly detailed continued focus on all of the wronged lovers and abused friends, but it is after all a true story. The reader will often find him/herself simply outraged/shocked by Picasso's treatment of those who loved/cared for him and wonder why these intelligent and gifted beings would subject themselves to such horrible and continuing abuse.

Amazing insights into Picasso. Probably some anoxia to his brain.at birth I had not known about previouisly.
Becoming a "regular" in a brothel at 15 probably screwed up his subsequent inability to related to one woman when he matured, possibly akin to the female High School teachers who have sex with their (?lucky???) students, but these boys tend to have trouble also when they become men.
Obviously, his art explored places of the human psyche few others displayed, but his personal life was a total mess. One of the great human mysteries is how men like this attract "enablers", sycophants and women who were willing to become doormats.
Huffington writes well, especially when she is not riding her Liberal hobby-horse and this book shows no expense spared in the scrutiny of her subject. Perhaps that is the only problem with the book, it might be "over researched"

Awesome read. Very interested depth.

The author did a great job in telling this story in great detail. The book begins before Picasso's birth and goes through his death. I love the way the information and time line flowed. I have read books where the author bounces back and forth, not in this book! You'll learn a lot about the events in Picasso's life as a child that affected his life as an adult. The death of his sister had a great impact on him. I was surprised to learn that his father was an art teacher and taught Picasso how to paint. I also had no idea that there were long periods of time when Picasso didn't paint, but made sculptures, wrote poetry or sketched. You'll also learn how his life affected the pictures that he painted, how he was instrumental in Cubism and Dada, how he treated his friends and his fear of death.

must read if you are into the personal life of Picasso and also how it relates to his art---long , and definitely from the womans perspective,but excellent

If any book title is appropriate, this one is. "Picasso, Creator and Destroyer" by Arianna Huffington, shows the reader a person who was both a cosummate artist (the creator) and a terrible human being (the destroyer). Huffington relates Picasso's early days including periods when he shuttled back and forth between the artistic challenges of Paris and the comfort of his Spanish roots and his later years as a wealthy, God-like figure in the art world. This is the second time I've read this book, and this time around the sociopathic nature of Picasso as he is portrayed here strikes me. While the book gives ample attention to Picasso's protean artistic accomplishments, what strikes the reader is his failure as a human being. His life as portrayed in this book is zero sum - on the plus side his artistic accomplishments, on the minus side his meglomania. One can appreciate this book as a history of Picasso and the Paris of his time and/or a portrait of a not very nice person. Toward the end, the book becomes somewhat repetative as Picasso's life descends into domination by his last mistress/wife and into reduced creative vigor, but is nevertheless a fascinating portrait of one of our seminal artists.
Fine reading;the best biographical work on Picasso. Fair review of his multi-facetted life and personality. A portrait written with great psychological depth, flair, knowledge of the arts and fascinating insights and comments from those who knew him.

Ariana Stassinopoulos' balanced story of both his weaknesses and strengths is a ''must read''.
