Pablo Picasso: A Revolutionary Painter from Spain

Pablo Picasso (October 25, 1881 - April 8, 1973) was a Spanish artist who revolutionized painting, drawing, sculpture, and ceramics (pottery). Picasso was born in Malaga, in southern Spain. His father was an artist and art teacher. Picasso was a child prodigy, producing complex artwork at an early age.

During his life, Picasso painted in many styles, including realism, cubism (1906-1918), and other abstract styles.

Pablo Picasso was trained as an artist in Spain, but moved to Paris in 1900, when he was 19 years old. In his early career, Picasso worked and lived in Paris, Barcelona, and Madrid. His early paintings were melancholy and featured the color blue, so this period is referred to as his "blue period."

Picasso's "blue period," (1901 to 1904), was followed by his "rose period," (1904-1906), during which Picasso used warmer colors in his paintings. Later, he helped develop cubism (with his friend Georges Braque), a newly-invented style in which objects were represented by cubes, cones, and cylinders. He also experimented with surrealism (a dream-like style with unexpected juxtapositions), abstraction, collage (attaching bits of paper and other scraps to a canvas), mural painting, sculpture, and ceramics.
