Full Description

Meet Pablo Picasso and discover the story of his life and work in this engagingly illustrated biography – narrated by the artist himself. Pablo Picasso redefined 20th-century art, moving from realistic portrayals and experiments in colour to primitivism and cubism, in which he deconstructed the subjects he painted. This engaging first-person biography explores the unique career of this master, who began learning to draw and paint at just seven years old. It delves into Picasso’s training, including at the School of Fine Arts in Barcelona; his various stylistic periods, from naturalism to surrealism; his experience living in Paris under German occupation during World War II; his many marriages; and his profound influence on later artists. Ages 6 plus
