It was in 1894, in Barcelona, when he was only thirteen years old, that Pablo Picasso began to draw on small notebooks that he kept with him. For more than seventy years, throughout a career that was to make him the greatest painter of the twentieth century, Picasso noted most of the ideas, scenes that struck him, so that in 1964, he had in his possession 175 notebooks retracing in a unique way the history of his work
Je suis le cahier, written by Picasso on the cover of one of his notebooks, reveals step by step the magical gestation of several of the best-known works: {Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, l’Enlèvement des Sabines, la Famille des Saltimbanques}, etc.
