Pablo Picasso

By: Hilary Doherty


Picasso was one of the greatest artists of his time.

He was born in 1881 and died in 1973.


Picasso’s image as an artist is one of infinite diversity including sculpture, ceramics, paintings and stage design.

Some of my favorite periods of his work include The Blue Period, The Triumphant Years, The Rose Period and abstract work.

Picasso’s creations are not merely part of the sum total of 20th-century art, but rather are seen as its icons. “Guernica”, for instance is unquestionably the most famous modern painting, worldwide, matched as an art classic only by works such as Leonardo’s “Mona Lisa” or Rembrandt’s “Night Watch”.

Picasso of 20

Pablo Picasso was born in Malaga, Spain, to artist and teacher Jose Ruiz Blasco, and his wife Maria Picasso. 

A decade later, young Pablo Picasso learned how to paint from his father, who had been appointed teacher at the DaGuarda art school in La Coruna.

Picasso's artistic production is usually described in terms of a series of overlapping periods. In his “blue period” (1901–4) he depicted the world of the poor.

When I was fourteen I even painted a few of his works on my garage walls, which are about 4 feet tall, including “Poor People on the Seashore” also know as “The Tragedy,”

As one of the founders of modern abstract art, Pablo Picasso is generally associated with cubism and related styles which are predominantly abstract. It is therefore essential to realize that at the time of Picasso's blue period, abstract art as we know it today didn't yet exist.

As a twenty year old man Pablo Picasso was an accomplished classicist painter, but like many young artists of his time, he was dissatisfied with the principles of traditional art.

In 1907 Picasso painted Les Demoiselles d'Avignon (Mus. of Modern Art, New York City), a radical departure from the artistic ideas of the preceding ages and now considered the most significant work in the development toward cubism and modern abstraction.

In his later years Picasso turned to creations of fantasy and comic invention. He worked consistently in sculpture, ceramics, and in the graphic arts, producing thousands of superb drawings, illustrations, and stage designs.

By the time he died, he had created over 22,000 works of art in a variety of mediums.
