Synopsis

And Picasso Painted Guernica by Alain Serres

Picasso's artistic genius was clear from childhood. This outstanding book begins with the doves young Pablo painted with his father when he was only seven, then shows us his later passions for harlequins and street people, bulls and minotaurs, new ways of seeing and new ways of rendering life. All of these contributed to the massive work Guernica, of 1937, painted as a protest against the bombing of defenceless civilians and against the brutality of war everywhere. It is a biography of both an epoch-making artist and a unique painting that resonated with the outrage of people around the world.
