Description - Biographic: Picasso by Natalia Price-Cabrera
The Biographics series presents an entirely new way of looking at the lives of the world's greatest thinkers and creatives. It takes the 50 defining facts, dates, thoughts, habits, and achievements of each subject, and uses infographics to convey each of them in vivid snapshots. The result is a quickfire journey through truths and trivia that is the most entertaining way to follow in the footsteps of the men and women whose lives have most influenced our own. Many people know that Pablo Picasso (1881 1973) was a Spanish painter, sculptor, printmaker and poet, a pioneer of Modernism and Cubism whose works include "Les Demoiselles D'Avignon'. What, perhaps, they don't know is that his full name is 23 words long; that he painted 15 different versions of 'Les Femmes D'Algers', one of which sold in 2015 for $179 million; that doctors thought he was stillborn until his uncle blew cigar smoke into his face; and that he was interviewed by police over the theft of the 'Mona Lisa'. Biographic: Picasso presents a modern study of his life and work, with an array of irresistible facts and figures converted into infographics to reveal the artist behind the pictures. AUTHOR: Author Natalia Price-Cabrera has been a fan of Picasso's work ever since visiting the Musee Picasso in Paris as a small child. She went on to study History of Art at UCL where she garnered a 1st Class Honours Degree. Consultant Dr Diana Newall has lectured for 12 years on a range of subjects in Art History at various establishments including Sotheby's Institute of Art and Birkbeck College, London.
