  1. • Picasso Quotes • Action is the foundational key to all success. • Are we to paint what's on the face, what's inside the face, or what's behind it? • Art is the elimination of the unnecessary. • Every act of creation is first an act of destruction. • Everything is a miracle. It is a miracle that one does not dissolve in one's bath like a lump of sugar. • I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it. • Inspiration exists, but it has to find us working. • Everything you can imagine is real. Picasso • Pablo Picasso is one of the founders of modern abstract art, and is generally associated with cubism. • After the World War I, the society was going through a violent change, and so did Pablo Picasso's style of painting. • He started painting in a neoclassical style. • During the 1930s, some more changes were incorporated in Picasso's paintings the major one being the replacement of the harlequin with the minotaur as a common motif. • Picasso was greatly influenced to use minotaur from his contact with the surrealists, who were known for using it often as their symbol.

  2. • Pablo Picasso's Blue Period refers to a series of paintings in which the color blue dominates and which he painted between 1901 and 1904. The blue period is a marvelous expression of poetic subtlety and personal melancholy and contributes to the transition of Picasso's style from classicism to abstract art. Life • During his Rose Period, Pablo Picasso would, for the first time in his career, develop stylistic means that would become part of his Picasso Style, which made him the most important artist of the 20th century. This happened from 1904-1906 where Picasso's work regained its romantic quality in a series of paintings in warmer colors, many of them in the color pink. The artwork from this period is known to be more optimistic in mood and brighter colored.

Picasso would always remain an aesthetic at heart, but every now and then his urge to innovate made the structuralist in him surface, often resulting in shocking effects. His artistic ambition was such that he endured long periods of personal hardship in order to be able to innovate and rise above his more conservative colleagues. Like Van Gogh found a catalyst in Japanese art, Picasso came under the spell of African art and used its primitive power to shake off his classicist mannerism that offered no possibilities to innovate.
