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.
