Pablo Picasso was an artist and a sculptor.
Picasso was born the 25 October 1881 in Málaga, Spain. His father, José Ruiz Blasco, was teacher in the Fine Arts School of this city.
He moves several times during his life, at the beginning with his family went to la Coruna in 1891, and in 1895 was translated with his family to Barcelona. Later spend some time in Madrid
When he is just 10 years old did his first paintings. He goes to the Fine Art School when he is 15 years old. He reaches the school with the drawing “Ciencia y Caridad” (1897, Picasso Museum Barcelona)
Finally, in 1904, Picasso translated to Paris and he did establish his study in the rivers of the Seine. When he met his first girlfriend, all his paint become red and pink, and open a new style for him that is known like “pink period”. Most of his work in this period was focus on the circus, like “Familia de acróbatas” (1905, National Gallery, Washington)
In 1906, during a period in Andorra, he changes his style for the influence of the Greek, Iberian and African art. He changes the face for a mask. The main work in this period is “Las señoritas de Aviñón” (1907, Modern Art Museum, New York)
From this style, he began to paint landscapes using small cubes, and that was the origin of the term “cubism”. During this period, he mixed the cubism with the monochromes, like in “Arlequin” (1915, Pompidou Paris)
Really Picasso has a long list of important painting, probably one of the most famous example is “El Guernica” (1937, Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía)).
He created the many original styles of painting, for example the cubism that we have told before, and a new type the sculpture, the "Mediterranean origins".
In 1973 he dies in the castle of Vouvenargues, when he was still working till the last day.
