A comprehensive exploration and chronicle of Picasso's depictions of his eldest daughter, Maya, and the relationship between father and child.

In 2016 and 2017, Diana Widmaier-Picasso curated two exhibitions for Gagosian: the first gathered works from the collection of her mother, Maya Ruiz-Picasso, Pablo Picasso's beloved eldest daughter; and the second commemorated the relationship between Picasso and Maya. More than just a catalog of these two exhibitions, this book is a comprehensive reference publication that explores the figure of Maya throughout Picasso's work and chronicles the relationship between the artist and his daughter. The volume features an intimate interview between Ruiz-Picasso and Widmaier-Picasso, along with archival photographs by Edward Quinn and from the Picasso family, many of which have never been published before.

New scholarly essays complete the publication, with contributions by distinguished Picasso scholars such as Elizabeth Cowling, Carmen Giménez, and Pepe Karmel. A section of the book is devoted to Picasso's plaster sculpture La Femme Enceinte (1959) and includes a discussion of Roe Ethridge's vivid, specially commissioned photographs of this work.
