Cahiers d’Art, the Paris-based publishing house founded in 1926 by Greek-born Christian Zervos, announced that ‘The Zervos’ Picasso Catalogue will be reprinted and distributed exclusively through the Sotheby’s Auction House.
“Pablo Picasso par Christian Zervos,’ known by many simply as ‘the Zervos,’ remains the most trusted reference to the works of Picasso. ‘The Zervos’ is an extensive catalogue of Picasso’s paintings and drawings, presenting over 16,000 images in thirty-three volumes. Prepared by Cahiers d’art founder Christian Zervos in direct collaboration with Picasso, the Zervos was published between 1932 and 1978.”
Priced at $20,000 per set, the new edition is available in French, and in English translation for the first time in its history. Printed in Italy to exacting specifications, this new edition will be available to ship on or about 15 February 2014. Reserve your set at zervos.sothebys.com.
