Description: James Lord first arrived in Paris toward the end of World War II, a brash but insignificant young man bent on achieving distinction. His immediate priority was nothing less than to make the acquaintance of the greatest artist of our century: Pablo Picasso. How he managed to do this, to persuade the artist to draw not one but two portraits of him, and to become a welcome visitor to Picasso's studio is only the beginning of this haunting and memorable narrative by one of the most gifted and discerning chroniclers of modern art. Picasso and Dora tells the story of Lord's intense but ambivalent relationship with the great artist. More important, however, it relates with detailed candor his long, intimate, complex relationship with Dora Maar, the mistress from whom Picasso was just parting when the young soldier met them. A legendary and reclusive figure, a gifted photographer and painter, still living today in the apartment and country house where Picasso installed her more than half a century ago, Dora Maar is at once the most important and least known of Picasso's loves. Lord's memoir brings her to life with the bold and incisive aptitude for psychological truth which has always characterized his work. The cast of secondary characters in this vivid evocation of the postwar Parisian art world includes Balthus, Jacques Lacan, Andre Masson, Giacometti, and numerous others. Picasso and Dora represents a new - and permanent - contribution to the history of art in our time.
