This book shows us a young Picasso virtually unknown to the art-loving public at large. This book covers the early years of Pablo Ruiz Picasso. In this small but great work painted by the Master we can clearly see that a genius is born a genius and, regardless of his age, he shows this from the beginning. In the same way that 12-year-old Mozart was already an accomplished musician acknowledged all over Europe, the work I present here reveals Picasso’s incredible precociousness and talent.
