This award-winning graphic biography of Pablo Picasso (1881–1973) captures the prolific and eventful life of one of the world’s best-loved artists. Pablo explores Picasso’s early life among the bohemians of Montmartre, his turbulent relationship with artist/model Fernande Olivier, and how his art developed through friendships
with poets Max Jacob and Guillaume Apollinaire, the painter Georges Braque, and his great rival Henri Matisse. Julie Birmant and Clément Oubrerie depict a career that began in poverty and reached its climax with the advent of cubism and modern art.
Julie Birmant, a former director of the Brussels film school INSAS, has made documentaries on popular science and co-edited issues of the Journal of Alternative Theatre. She lives in France. Clément Oubrerie is a French artist who has illustrated more than 40 books. His first graphic novel, Aya of Yop City, won the First Book Award at the Angoulême International Comics Festival; was nominated for the YALSA Great Graphic Novels list and an Eisner Award; and made best-of lists in the
Washington Post, Booklist, Publishers Weekly, and School Library Journal.
