School Library Journal Review

Gr 5-8-This straightforward look at the life and work of Picasso touches on art history, society, politics, and philosophy while outlining the noted periods of his career. There is no fictionalizing of events, and Holland reveals Picasso's internal thoughts only when there is documentation to sustain them. Readers are provided with a clear and concise depiction of the man, the world around him, and his effect on it, through both his art and his politics. Black-and-white photos and full-color reproductions are of good quality but small and sparse. However, lists of Web sites that provide access to images of Picasso's work are appended.-Toniann Scime, Amherst Museum, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
