About the Author

Susan Grace Galassi is the author of Picasso's Variations on the Masters: Confrontations with the Past (Abrams, 1996). She received her Ph.D. in art history from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, and is currently Associate Curator of The Frick Collection in New York City.


Pablo Picasso is widely considered the greatest artist of the twentieth century. In a career spanning seventy-five years, he mastered virtually every medium of visual artistic expression and was a principal force in the development of modern art. Although his paintings are best known, many critics believe his drawings to be equally innovative.

This little book is a real joy, and it should have a wide appeal. Seeing what vital fun Picasso can have by putting his pen down on the paper for just one long line is a great way to enter into what drawing and art are all about. In my opinion, this book makes a great gift--though small, it is unlike many "coffee table books" people are always giving, in that the quantity of sheer fun on every page (also through Picasso's verbal one-liners) keeps beckoning you to open it up, the way you might put a favorite CD on the stereo. A great little book full of artistic delight!

A great, smile producing example of what a pencil and one continuous line can create in the hand of a great artist. I purchased this as a gift for my 7 year old grandson, hopefully inspiring him to try his hand in this genre. If you would like to see if your genius youngster can produce a Picasso, google a copy of his dog drawing and let him(her) loose. If they are fascinated, then buy the book.
The book is nicely produced but the author has left a lot of one-liners out. You can find more subjects with a simple internet search.

The author has included a nice compilation of some of Pablo's more complex drawings for adults.

Format: Hardcover
This little book consists of Picasso's pen and ink drawings that he completed with one line (never picking the pen up off of the paper. Matadors, bulls and harlequins are among the subject matter of the drawings. There are occaional quotes interspersed throughout the book. This a cute little book that would make a fun gift for a Picasso fan.
