Pablo Picasso

One of the greatest painters and sculptors of 19th-20th century!

Pablo picasso

Pablo was borm in october 25th , 1881 in Malaga, Spain. His parent gave him the name Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Clito. He was the first child of Don José Ruiz y Blasco (1838–1913) and María Picasso y López . His family was middle-class. His father was a painter and for most of his life he was a professor of art at the School of Crafts and a curator of a local museum. Pablo’s mother claims that her son was talented since his early age of 6. His first words,as she says,were “piz,piz”, s short name of lapiz (from Spanish – pencil). From his age of 7,he took some formal artistic classes from his father. One day Picasso’s father found his son painting his unfinished sketch of a pigeon. He was very surprised about th technique of his son and how precised his son was. Diego decided to give up painting.

Picasso’s work is often categorized into periods. While the names of many of his laterperiods are debated, the most commonly accepted periods in his work are theBlue Period(1901–1904), theRose Period(1905–1907), theAfrican-influenced Period(1908–1909),Analytic Cubism(1909–1912), andSynthetic Cubism(1912-1919).Picasso’s training under his father began before 1890. His progress can be traced in the collection of early works now held by the Museu Picasso in Barcelona, which provides one of the most comprehensive records extant of any major artist’s beginnings.During 1893 the juvenile quality of his earliest work falls away, and by 1894 his career as a painter can be said to have begun.


  • “Femme aux bras Croisés”

    painted inthe year of 1902.This is one of his most famous paintings, it symbolises his Blue Period.


Тhis one represents his Rose period. Harlequins became a theme that Picasso would paint repeatedly in pinks and rose colors.  It was with the Rose Period that Picasso experienced his first loves.

African influenced period
African-influenced Period

  • Picasso’s African-influenced Period (1907–1909) begins with the two figures on the right in his painting, Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, which were inspired by African artifacts. Formal ideas developed during this period lead directly into the Cubist period that follows.


Many people heard of Cubism but are not sure what it is or was.  In 1910 Picasso developed a new means of pictorial expression unlike  any before him. Picasso deconstructed objects into their components so that different viewpoints are juxtaposed and seen in one plane.  A conceptual image rather than perceptual image on an object was created through this analytical cubist presentation.

  • Picasso was one of 250 sculptors who exhibited in the 3rd Sculpture International held at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in the summer of 1949. In the 1950s, Picasso’s style changed once again, as he took to producing reinterpretations of the art of the great masters. He made a series of works based on Velazquez’s painting of Las Meninas. He also based paintings on works by Goya, Poussin, Manet, Courbet and Delacroix.He was commissioned to make a maquette for a huge 50-foot-high public sculpture to be built in Chicago, known usually as the Chicago Picasso. He approached the project with a great deal of enthusiasm, designing a sculpture which was ambiguous and somewhat controversial. What the figure represents is not known; it could be a bird, a horse, a woman or a totally abstract shape. The sculpture, one of the most recognizable landmarks in downtown Chicago, was unveiled in 1967. Picasso refused to be paid $100,000 for it, donating it to the people of the city.
