‘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 33 volumes. Prepared by Cahiers d’art founder Christian Zervos in direct collaboration with Picasso, the Zervos was published between 1932 and 1978.

Long out of print and highly sought-after by collectors, the Zervos is now available again. This new, revised edition, published by Cahiers d’Art, includes corrections to the original catalogue prepared together with the Picasso Administration. The new edition, printed in Italy, is available in French, and in English translation for the first time in its history. No collector or museum should be without this legendary catalogue, the most trusted reference to the works of Picasso.
