I’m escaping the city this weekend, and I can’t wait. I’m planning on finishing the second volume of John Richardson’s A Life of Picasso, along with taking many naps and making some s’mores. Since I read the first volume of Richardson’s three-part Picasso bio last summer, I think I’ll wait until next summer to read the third volume, making it an annual tradition. I haven’t enjoyed these biographies as much as I enjoyed the Van Gogh and Pollock bios by Steven Naifeh & Gregory White Smith, but they are still worthwhile reads for anyone interested in the lives of artists.
What are you reading?
