Julie Birmant & Clément Oubrerie in Comica Conversation on Picasso Graphic Biography
Posted: March 19, 2015
In the shops now is the gorgeous collection from SelfMadeHero of Julie Birmant and Clément Oubrerie’s four-volume graphic biography of Picasso, entitled Pablo. Taking in Picasso’s early life among the bohemians of Montmartre and his turbulent relationship with his model and lover Fernande, this stunning book shows how the artist’s style developed in response to his friendships and rivalries and follows the artist’s career from his origins in penury to the advent of modern art.
On Wednesday April 15th, Birmant and Oubrerie are coming to London to take part in an exclusive Comica Conversation at the Institut Français, 17 Queensberry Place, London SW7 2DT, with Comica Co-Director Paul Gravett, followed by Q&A and a book signing. This is a free event starting at 7pm, but you need to RSVP please to book a place by sending an email to: box.office [at] institutfrancais.org.uk - see you there!
This event is co-hosted by COMICA Festival, the Institut Français, SelfMadeHero and the London Book and Screen Week.
