Facts about Picasso, pictures of Picasso, Pablo

Picasso, Pablo (25 October 1881 – 8 April 1973) was one of the most significant painters of this century. His originality was unparalleled, and it can be said that he changed the whole nature of painting. He took this great art out of the merely imitative stage. He advanced painting into a realm of expression of profound and often disturbing ideas by the creation of images which expressed thought as well as the depiction of forms and objects.

Picasso was born at Malaga in Spain, the son of a local painter and art teacher. After studying at art schools in Barcelona and Madrid in Spain he moved, in 1903, to Paris, and has spent most of his life in France.

Facts about Picasso:

Ambroise Vollard is one of significant Picasso picture

Interesting fact - Picasso painted first realistic pictures with ordinary people as his subjects. Life in circuses and big cities fascinated him. But even his early paintings were aimed to show the misery of poor people as well as showing their actual appearance. He painted a great number of studies in various shades of blue to convey the sadness and pathos of circus performers' lives. Gradually he began to paint in a most revolutionary style called cubism.

In cubism, the picture is built up of triangles and cubes. It shows several dimensions and aspects of the subject at one and the same time. Ambroise Vollard is a significant Picasso picture of this period. It is a cubist portrait of an art dealer.

From 1918 to 1924 Picasso's painting was more natural. But he gradually began to use colors and shapes to show intensity of feeling. His painting called Guernica expresses in agonizing images the artist's horror at the bombing of a defenseless town during the Spanish Civil War, which broke out in 1936.

Picasso is a superb draftsman. And he has brought his talents to the creation of images that express in an unconventional way such themes as grief and agony. His art ranges over many mediums such as etching, lithography, book illustration and designs for ballet sets. His pottery and sculpture are unique. He often takes familiar objects such as the handlebars and saddle of a bicycle, and forms them into new images simply by careful and patient rearrangement.
