Always interested about this friendship/rivalry but this book is more an art history lesson of the two great painters than new insights into their relationship. Nothing wrong with art history but I knew most of what he wrote here. Also I'm always interested why Picasso was left alone by the Nazis in Paris? I've read brief and conflicting snippets and inconclusive, conflicting summaries but I still wonder.
Excellent and well-documented info on these two allies/opponents. Writing was refreshing and good storytelling amidst the art history. Loved hearing how the Steins, Gertrude/her brother and family, looked to the Parisians:-) Those sandals!
