"Pablo Picasso's relationships with both his children and his female companions were often tempestuous and destructive, but they provided the drama on which he fed as he created one groundbreaking work after another. From ceramics to print making to sculpture to photography to poetry, Picasso had a huge appetite for expressing himself through every kind of artistic medium, and he is now considered one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. With bold, powerful oil paintings, David Diaz captures the intensity of a man who once signed a drawing as "Yo el rey" or "I the King." Besides beautifully crafted free-verse poems on Picasso's life, there is a back section that includes a glossary, a chronology, sources, notes, and a biographical essa essay."--Provided by publisher.… (mer)

"Painting is poetry
and is always written in verse
with plastic rhymes,
never in prose.”

Pablo Picasso

This lovely representation of Picasso’s life is enhanced by the magical paintings not only by Picasso himself but by the excellent illustrator David Diaz. The text consists of free verse poems focusing not so much on Picasso's art per se but on the people and events influencing his art.

For those of you who don’t know Picasso’s personal story, this poetic account manages to convey many of the highlights in a short and appealing form. Some of the poems incorporate original source material from biographies, such as the one accompanying a reproduction of Picasso’s actual portrait of Gertrude Stein. I especially appreciated the stanza that speaks of the influence of Picasso:

"Her portrait.
‘Nobody thinks it is a good likeness,
but never mind, in the end,
she is going to look just like that.’”

There is much in the material that will inspire interest and discussion, such as this quote included in the poem “I am God”:

"’God is really another artist.
He invented the giraffe, the elephant, and the car.
He has no style. He just keeps trying other things.”

At the end of the book, there is a wealth of material, including background material, a glossary, list of sources and notes, and a chronology.

Discussion: The author doesn’t shy away from writing about the tragic aspects of Picasso’s life, nor about Picasso’s relationships with women, such as this poem:

"Françoise Gilot.
What good fortune!
So young and a painter too.
Her eyebrows like bird wings.
A new conquest, a new passion, a new style,
a new muse to Picasso’s creative art.
He replaces features of his previous lover
with features of his current lover, until –
he asks Françoise to dress in mallow and green.
Blue-stem body,
Venus-blue flower face,
verde-leaf hair.
‘It’s strange, isn’t it? But it’s absolutely you.’”

Diaz’s rich, stylized paintings show an awareness and appreciation of Picasso’s fluidity of perspective, yet also reflect Diaz’s own distinctive mode of expression. Diaz excels here, using his vivid, jewel-like colors and folk art representations to provide a unique interpretation of Picasso’s life and art.

Evaluation: This is another one of those books that needs to be classified in the non-existent-but-should-be genre of Picture Books for Adults. Highly recommended for older children and up! ( )
