William K. Rudolph. Nelson Rockefeller's Picassos: tapestries commissioned for Kykuit

This publication explores the innovative and historic collaboration between one of the twentieth century's greatest art patrons and one of its most influential artists. Between 1955 and 1975, New York Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller (1908-1979) commissioned or acquired nineteen tapestries adapted from iconic paintings by Pablo Picasso (1881-1973). In consultation with the artist himself, the tapestries were woven entirely by hand by Jacqueline de la Baume Dürrback in Southern France. Many of these tapestries may now be enjoyed by the public as part of the collection at Kykuit, the Rockefeller Estate administered by the National Trust.
