Art is the expression of feelings that cannot be told in words. Artists die but the art can never that’s why Picasso is still remembered today after hundreds of years of his death just because of his art.

Now the question arises WHO WAS PICASSO?


Pablo Picasso was a Spanish painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist, and stage designer who is widely regarded as one of the twentieth century's greatest and most important artists. Cubism is said to have been founded by Picasso and Georges Braque. Pablo Picasso, in full Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno Crispin Crispiniano María Remedios de la Santísima Trinidad Ruiz Picasso, also called Pablo Ruiz or Pablo Ruiz Picasso.


Pablo Ruiz was born on October 25, 1881, in Malaga, Spain, the son of an art teacher named José Ruiz Blasco. Picasso was his mother's maiden name, which he eventually adopted. He grew up in Barcelona and showed early signs of artistic ability. He traveled between France and Spain in the early 1900s until settling in Paris in 1904. He was reared as a Catholic but declared himself an atheist later in life. One of the most well-known artists of the twentieth century is Pablo Picasso.

The young Picasso had a piercing, observant black eyes that seemed to brand him as destined for greatness. He was a somber and prematurely world-weary boy.

“When I was child, my mother said to me, ‘If you become a soldier, you’ll be a General. If you become a monk you’ll end as the Pope,’” He later recalled. “Instead, I became a painter, eventually becoming Picasso."


The work of Picasso, which comprises more than 50,000 paintings, drawings, engravings, sculptures, and ceramics produced over 80 years, is described in a series of overlapping periods.


His first notable period–the “BLUE PERIOD” began shortly after his first Paris exhibit. This period extended from 1901 to 1904. During this period, the artist mostly painted in blues, with a few splashes of color here and there. For example, The Old Guitarist is a classic 1903 painting that displays a guitar in warmer brown tones among the blue colors. Due to their subdued tones, Picasso's Blue Period works are typically considered as sad.

In the spring of 1904, Picasso made the decision to move permanently to Paris. Picasso's blue era was followed by his "ROSE PERIOD," in which he frequently painted circus settings, and then by his early sculpture. This period lasted from 1904 to 1906. This period marks the beginning of Pablo Picasso's use of bright orange and pink colors in his paintings, as opposed to the chilly, melancholy tones of the previous Blue Period. For example. Boy with a Pipe (Garçon à la Pipe). The subject of this painting was a local boy "P'tit Louis" who died at a very young age.

Picasso made Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, (The Ladies of Avignon) one of his best-known and most controversial works, during his African art period, which was extended from 1907 to 1909. His work has been controversial due to his harsh depiction of the female body and masklike painting of the faces (inspired by a study of African art).

From 1907 to 1912, Pablo worked with fellow painter Georges Braque in creating the beginnings of CUBIST MOVEMENT in art. The CUBISM is divided into two phases, Analytical cubism, and Synthetic cubism.

The first phase, Analytic Cubism gets its name from the way it dissects the subject, perspective by viewpoint, resulting in a jumbled image with various viewpoints and overlapping planes. This phase includes much painting. One of the most famous paintings is Head of a Woman, Fernande (1909). Fernande Olivier, the artist's seven-year loving relationship, appeared in many of the artist's Cubist works, including Head of a Woman, Fernande.

The second phase, Synthetic Cubism a period in the Cubism art movement that lasted from 1912 until 1914. Artists began experimenting with collage utilizing newspaper print and patterned paper to create textures and patterns for their paintings, resulting in synthetic cubism. One example of Synthetic Cubism is Bowl of Fruit, Violin, and Bottle 1914.

In his work, a new spirit of the Mediterranean emerged, particularly in the utilization of classical shapes and drawing techniques.

Following his first trip to Italy and the end of World War I, the artist's paintings, such as Peasants Sleeping (1919), showed a return to order in art, and his neoclassical works stand in stark contrast to his Cubist works.

This movement culminated in 1937 with the masterpiece Guernica, a gigantic sculpture that represented the terror and suffering faced by the Basque town of Guernica during the Spanish Civil Combat when it was bombed by German war bombers. Picasso remained in Paris during the Nazi occupation, but he was a staunch opponent of fascism and joined the French Communist Party after the war.

Picasso remained in Paris under German occupation during World War II, undergoing Gestapo harassment while continuing to create paintings. He composed poetry from time to time, completing around 300 works between 1939 and 1959. "Desire Caught by the Tail" and "The Four Little Girls" were two of his plays that he finished.

The sculpture was his main emphasis during this time, and he took part in an international show at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in 1949. He then produced the Chicago Picasso, a commissioned sculpture that he dedicated to the American city US.

He spent much of his life in the south of France, from 1946 to his death. Paintings, sculptures, etchings, and ceramics were among the many types of art he produced.

Throughout his life, Picasso had a series of relationships with women who were both artistic muses and lovers. He was the father of four children. He died of a heart attack at his residence near Cannes on April 8, 1973.
