Pablo Picasso

The Three Musicians

“Every child is an artist” -Picasso

Born in Málaga, Spain, in 1881, Pablo Picasso, became one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century and the creator (with Georges Braque) of Cubism.

Legend has it that his first word was “piz”, short for “pencil” in Spanish. It soon became apparent that Pablo had little interest in school, but was an extremely talented artist.

A painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist and stage designer, it is estimated that Picasso produced at least 50,000 works of art: 1,885 paintings; 1,228 sculptures; 2,880 ceramics, roughly 12,000 drawings, many thousands of prints, and numerous tapestries and rugs. He also wrote plays and poetry. He died on April 8, 1973.
