The Boy Who Bit Picasso

  • Sale
  • Regular price £8.95


The Boy Who Bit Picasso tells the true story of Antony Penrose – son of the photographer Lee Miller and the painter and writer Roland Penrose – and his childhood friendship with the great artist. Vividly recalled are the pair’s shared love of animals, enthusiasm for games and evident joy in art, as well as the many happy hours spent on Tony’s farm in England and in Picasso’s own cluttered houses and studios in France.

Enchanting illustrations accompany the text, including many artworks by Picasso, photographs by Lee Miller and specially commissioned drawings by children. An inspiring look at the creative practices of an artist, The Boy Who Bit Picasso is above all a nostalgic testament to friendship and happy days.
