How to Befriend a Butterfly 06/08/20
Allan shows how being different can work out well as he describes and illustrates Picasso’s unusual attitude to art! We see how everything the artist wanted to do, from being an artist, to painting in single colours, combining full-face and profile, and sculpting from junk, was ridiculed by others. However Picasso ignored them, and as we see in dazzling blue text on a black page, he was soon the greatest painter in the world.
The final spread shows that Picasso’s choice in trousers was also different, supported by a photo of him in his studio, while an extra page gives a short but accurate account of his life and work. An excellent humorous introduction to the artist for younger readers.
