A clever and witty read-aloud book for children about the great French artist Yves Klein, who always wanted to surprise his audience. One day he decided that he only wanted to paint with one color and it had to be the color blue. He painted on canvases, branches, globes, floors and even human bodies. The story of Yves Klein is told in a witty and eccentric way and the text is accompanied by simple drawings in black with splashes of blue.
The book is written by the Italian painter and illustrator Fausto Gilberti, who has participated in more than a hundred solo and group exhibitions around the world.
His goal in writing this biographical book was to make modern art accessible and enjoyable to his own children and can now be enjoyed by many more.
The book is a unique tribute to one of the most famous artists of the twentieth century, contains 48 illustrations and is part of a series of biographies about the artists of our time told to children.
