A clever, quirky read-aloud biography of a leading modern artist, for kids
Artist Yves Klein always thought about how he could surprise his audience. One day, he decided that he would only paint in one color – blue. He painted canvases, globes, branches, gallery floors, and even covered people in blue paint. Klein’s story is told here with wit and eccentricity, perfectly paired with black-line illustrations and blue splashes galore. Fausto Gilberti brings movement, life, and whimsy to the true life story of one of the most important modern French artists of our time.
