Many of us were blessed with parents who nurtured our childhood hobbies.

Fewer of us can say that our parents were famous in their field and put their expertise to direct use in instructing us, however.

Diana Widmaier-Ruiz-Picasso, a granddaughter of the painter Pablo Picasso, recently discovered the books on drawing that her grandfather had made for her mother, Maya.

They contain images of animals, birds, clowns, acrobats, horses, and doves, which the young Maya Ruiz-Picasso worked hard to replicate.

The Guardian has images of these Picasso how-to-draw books, for those unable to head to the Musée Picasso-Paris's exhibition "Maya Ruiz-Picasso, Daughter of Pablo," before December 21.

(PS: Happy Father's Day to all those who celebrate!)
