Sacre Bleu! Le Monde publishes “Pablo” the story of Picasso … en bande dessinée


The French daily Le Monde – usually known for its dry assessments of world events is publishing – in four episodes – the story of one Pablo Picasso, … in comix form.

The stylishly drawn graphic novel is by Julie Birmant and Clément Oubrerie, and traces the life of the 20-year old painter during his stints at cubism. Featured are historical figures, like Kahnweiler, the gallery owner, and his work buddy – from whom he took more than a little inspiration from, on the subject of cubism… Braque.

We link to the whole series on Le Monde, here.
