Pablo Picasso


Pablo Picasso (Malaga 1881 - 1973 Mougins)

Pablo Picasso, pseudonym of Pablo Ruiz y Picasso, is considered one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. Picasso was an innovative and multifaceted artist who left an indelible mark on the history of art for being the founder, together with Georges Braque, of Cubism. Painter, draughtsman, sculptor, engraver, lithographer and author of collages and assemblages, ceramist, graphic designer, costume designer, poet and playwright. As a child, he revealed an early inclination for drawing and painting, cultivated thanks to his father figure. He moved to Paris in 1900, aged just 19, and it is precisely the early years of the 20th century that are considered to be the artist's blue period, a colour associated with sadness and melancholy. In 1904 began the artist's pink period, characterised by softer colours with circus themes. In 1907, the artist painted one of his most famous works, preserved at the MoMA in New York, Les demoiselles d'Avignon where the influence of African art can be seen. Another of the artist's masterpieces is the 1937 painting Guernica, a masterpiece measuring almost 8 metres by 3 and a half metres, a masterpiece symbolising the tragic massacre that took place in the Spanish city of Guernica, which was razed to the ground by a bombing that claimed hundreds of victims.
