Transcript of Pablo Picasso
Pablo Ruiz y Picasso, commonly known as Picasso, lived from October 25, 1881 to April 18, 1973. He was born in Málaga, Spain and died in Mougins, France. He was a painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist, and more. Picasso was also the co-creator of cubism and one of the most influential and revolutionary artists ever.
Picasso is known for his experimentation which began when he met a group of anarchists and radicals at a cafe called "El Quatre Gats". After his time with this group he began to have different periods in his career.
The color blue dominated his paintings. His work during this time was very lonely and depressed.
In 1907, Picasso experimented with a new art form, cubism. Cubism was a art form that included broken apart and reassembled geometric pieces/shapes. It was collage-like, yet destructive. He was the first painter to popularize this style.
Picasso was a generally poor student, but great with a pencil. His father, a painter and art teacher, practiced with Picasso, and by the time Picasso was 13 years old he had surpassed his father's skill. Picasso also went to the School of Fine Arts in Barcelona and even though he was too young to go they accepted him anyway because of his amazing abilities. Throughout his schooling, Picasso was often punished for skipping class to work on his pieces
