As a child Antony Penrose first met Picasso when he visited the Penrose family home of Farley Farm, in Chiddingly, East Sussex in 1950. They became instant friends and invented their own boisterous game of pretend bull fights. In the excitement Antony bit Picasso, and Picasso bit him right back, but it did not spoil the friendship and during the many visits he made to Picasso’s homes in France Antony felt very much at home. He loved the menagerie of pets – the live ones and those Picasso made as sculptures that seemed alive. Antony’s parents were Roland Penrose, the curator and biographer of Picasso, and Lee Miller, the photographer. Picasso painted her portrait six times and she photographed him more than 1,000 times and her images illustrate Antony’s entertaining and amusing account of life around Picasso. This lecture also covers the process of writing and the design of the book which has been very favourably reviewed and is a best seller.

Pablo Picasso was born in Spain to Jose Ruiz and Maria Picasso.
Like the Cubist artist, Gertrude Stein, a modernist writer of the 20th century, rejected the expectations of a society that required writing to model the speech of the English language just as it required art to model the visions and still life images of everyday situations and experiences....
Pablo Picasso has taken the world to many places with his unique style of work which is why I believe he is considered to be a genius of the 20th century.

His mother was a good mentor. At the age of 14 a family visit to PICASSO produced some amateur images which later became widely published. On a trip to Southern Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) in 1962 she was taken ill and handed him her Zeiss Contax to get the pictures she could not take. She explained the working of the light meter and advised, "If you drop the camera I will break your neck". Only recently have any of those pictures been published, which reminds us that the historical content of a photograph can compensate for the photographer's early lack of expertise. Later images from the 1960’s of artists such as PICASSO, Joan MIRÓ and Man RAY are now widely known.
