Take a colourful trip through the history of painting with Picasso as your guide!


Picasso is the most famous artists of the 20th century. But do you know where he got his inspiration from?

You'll find out here by discovering some of the world's great paintings through Picasso's interpretations of them. Get to know Velázquez, picnic with Manet and see the still lives painted by Chardin and Cézanne. And if you look carefully, Picasso will show you how to 'carve the paint' with Van Gogh!

At the end of your journey, have fun putting what you've learnt into action with the aid of the activity section. Use your pencils and brushes to distort, reshape and paint what you feel - just like Picasso!
