Product description


"An innovative approach to share Klein's rule-breaking and boundary-stretching approach to art... These picture books make contemporary art approachable and enjoyable to young readers... Readers of any age will be drawn to return to the books again and again, as I was."--Unpacking the Power of Picture Books

"Funny and delightful... A singular book about an inspiring charmer."--Publishers Weekly

"Gilberti tells the story of Yves Klein through whimsical line drawings and many splashes of Klein's signature blue."--New York Magazine Strategist

"Fausto Gilberti has managed to bottle the wild spirit of some of the world's greatest artists in his cheekily titled biographical series comprising (to date) Jackson Pollock Splashed Paint and Wasn't Sorry and Yves Klein Painted Everything Blue and Wasn't Sorry. In each book, the Italian author and illustrator combines inky black and white with a single pop of colour (blue for Yves Klein, egg-yolk yellow for Pollock), while his bug-eyed, zany artists recall the Minions from Despicable Me but with art history degrees and sharp suits... The books may end with an example of artwork and a more traditional biography but they're not solely for art-loving children and families; they celebrate individuality and creative self-expression."--The Observer

"I love picture book biographies, and Gilberti has told a great story and included a longer author's note about Yves Klein."--Kiss the Book
