Publisher’s presentation

Re-ordering the Universe is the first study of Picasso’s early work in its social, political, and historical contexts. Writers have sometimes noted that his early artistic milieu in Barcelona was flavored with anarchism. Nevertheless, no one until now has studied the full extent of his involvement with the strongly leftwing aspect of that artistic bohemia, the continuation of his political interests after his move to Paris in 1904, and, above all, the importance of the politics and philosophy of anarchism for the art he produced in the years before the First World War.
