PRAISE AND REVIEWS

New York Post

Richard Johnson

There’s pop art, and then there’s poop art. While Chris Ofili caused a spit-storm by using elephant dung in his 1996 painting ‘The Holy Virgin Mary,’ this new book 100 Secrets of the Art World reveals that Pablo Picasso used feces to paint with as far back as 1938. Divulging ‘a family secret,’ Diana Widmaier Picasso states that her grandfather used excrement produced by his then-3-year-old daughter Maya (Diana’s mother) to paint an apple in a 1938 still life.
