Product description

Sylvette is a shy little girl, but her neighbor happens to be the artist Pablo Picasso. Attracted by Sylvetteas classical facial profile and her lovely ponytail hair style, Picasso convinces her to overcome her shyness and pose for a series of artworks. These drawings, paintings, and sculptures soon become world famous, and encouraged to abandon her shyness, Sylvette herself begins a career as a fine artist. This is a title in Barronas Anholtas Artists Books for Children series, in which author and illustrator Laurence Anholt recalls memorable and sometimes amusing moments when the lives of the artists were touched by children. Anholtas fine illustrations appear on every page and include reproductions of works by the artists.
