From the Series On My Own Biography
This biography for new readers tells Pablo Picasso’s story by describing the evolution of his art—from his Blue Period to his Rose Period to cubism. As a child in Spain, Picasso drew pigeons, bullfights, and guitars. When he left home, he painted people who were poor and lonely like he was. During his Rose Period in Paris, he painted happy pictures. Young readers can follow the most significant events of Picasso’s life told in an engaging story format, as they’re represented in his art.
