Through his starkly contrasting moods of tone, Picasso created one of the world’s most recognized and celebrated pieces, Guernica in 1937.
Born on October 25, 1881 in Malaga, Spain, Pablo Picasso, has become one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century, not only for his bold and unprecedented ways of seeing the world around him, but also for the soul and human spirit within his art.
As pioneer of the Cubism movement Picasso was also a devote painter, sculptor, print maker, ceramicist and stage designer. Once considered a radical, Picasso has set the stage for portraying human emotion using the abstract and continues to be an inspiration to artists of wall walks of life.
