This latest addition to the Masters of Art Series continues the fine tradition of handsomely illustrated stories established by Peter Bedrick Books about the lives and times of famous artists. The elaborate colorful spreads trace Picasso's prolific career with high-quality reproductions, photographs, and informative text and captions. Detailed illustrations provide glimpses of the artist at work during various stages of his life. Together, the illustrations and text explore the historical and artistic background of Picasso's era, his technique, and the meaning of his work. One of the featured spreads is Picasso's Three Musicians. This is a good introductory book to Picasso for all age groups and is highly recommended for young readers at the middle school level.
