This delightful new book for children takes the reader on a colourful trip through the history of painting with Picasso as guide.
It reproduces some of Picasso's most famous works alongside the paintings that inspired them, from Velazquezs Meninas to Manets notorious Dejeuner sur lHerbe, exploring why Picasso loved them so much and how he re-created them in his own inimitable style.
The book ends with an activity section in which children can use their own pencils and brushes to distort, reshape and paint what they feel just like Picasso!
