Remembering Pablo Picasso on his 138th Anniversary
Pablo Picasso, who was born on October 25, 1881, in Málaga, Spain. The artist who brought us Cubism was surrounded by art from an early age. In his teens, his family moved from Málaga to Barcelona where he attended the School of Fine arts from 1896-97. Afterward, he moved to the Academy in Madrid. Picasso spent the next 70 years of his life voraciously creating art, moving from his Blue Period to the Rose Period, and on to his innovative Cubist work. From there he moved into Neo-Classicism and Surrealism. Picasso experimented with almost every medium imaginable, creating wondrous works on canvas, working with master printmakers to create magical lithographs and linocuts, and even moved into the fields of sculpture, glass, and in particular ceramics with the help of the Ramié’s. He created a vast oeuvre that today lives in many highly respected museums and private collections. After his death, the Musée Picasso was inaugurated in his honor, with collections donated by his heirs. Picasso lived a rich life, creating art until his death, having many lovers, and leaving behind his legacy with children and grandchildren. Here is a selection of the artist’s best works.
