This beautiful, clothbound publication presents a selection of portraits by the famous photographer Cecil Beaton (1904-1980), who photographed leading figures of the 20th century, from the Shah of Iran to Mick Jagger; movie stars such as Marlon Brando, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor; political figures such as Kennedy, Charles de Gaulle and Queen Elizabeth II; fashion icons such as Twiggy and Givenchy and famous artists such as Pablo Picasso, David Hockney and Georgia O’Keefe. Beaton worked for Vogue, where he made his first cover in July 1932, and where he would continue to work until the mid-1950s. He also worked for Harper’s Bazaar and Vanity Fair. He made numerous portraits of Hollywood stars in the 1930s, and was an official photographer for the British Royal Family in 1937. In the early 1950s he photographed the magnificent party held by the eccentric multimillionaire Carlos de Beistegui in his palace in Venice. Later, he progressively drifted from photography to set and clothes design for theatre and cinema.

In order to go beyond the rules and the veneration that have characterised the development of photography since its beginnings, it is necessary to transgress, to invent, to play and to flirt with freedom. Some authors, specially in the new generations, have dared to break the rules, without vindications, just out of curiosity, seeking to have and portray fun. Revolving around this idea, Players presents a selection of works by Magnum photographers that have playful approach, either because they play with the medium itself, or because they portray fun and leisure.

Picasso's Kitchen delves, for the first time, into the relationship between Picasso and cooking. Food and kitchenware are present in many of his still-lifes, such as the tomato plant in the Grands- Augustins studio, the eel stew that his wife Jacqueline used to cook, the main painting he made on Manet's Le dejeuner sur l'herbe... Cuisine is also a recurring topic in his poetry, and many of his sculptures are based on kitchen utensils, such as his famous cubist absinthe glass. This publication addresses food and cuisine in Picasso's work, but also the restaurants that marked his life - such as the famous Le Catalan, near his studio on Grands-Augustins Street, in which Picasso used to eat with his friends during German occupation - as well as the importance of restaurants as meeting points for the avant-garde, from Quatre Gats in Barcelona to Lapin Agile in Montmartre, Paris.
