SAN FRANCISCO, CA.-Picasso's Paintings, Watercolors, Drawings and Sculpture, A Comprehensive Illustrated Catalogue 1885-1973 will be published in January 2008 by Alan Wofsy Fine Arts LLC. This series of catalogues, directed by the late Herschel Chipp and Alan Wofsy, is the most comprehensive on the master’s work yet published.
The first catalogues appeared in 1995 and there will soon be 20 volumes covering 78 years of Picasso's 91 year lifespan. Subsequent catalogues will complete the project. Each volume contains an overview introduction and a chronology of the period. Each entry contains titles in English and French (Spanish and Catalan for the early years); date and place of creation, when known; dimensions of the work; location of the collection which owns the work, if public; selected publications in which the work has been illustrated; a bibliography of works that are cited; and concordances to Zervos, the Musée Picasso, Paris, the Museu Picasso, Barcelona and other standard reference works. There are also citations of sales of works from selected auctions.
