Et Picasso peint Guernica, by Alain Serres
This exceptional large-format picture book, which explains to children Picasso’s howl of outrage against war, is about both a work of art and a life. It describes the genesis of Picasso’s brilliant masterpiece,Guernica, which was painted in response to the bombing of that Spanish city. It is also about the Spanish painter’s extraordinary life, from his talented early childhood to his later commitment to peace, and helps readers grasp the wonder that all great works of art inspire. The Painting is reproduced in the book as a metre-long foldout.
