About Pablo Picasso in brief
Pablo Ruiz Picasso was a Spanish painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist and theatre designer. He is known for co-founding the Cubist movement, the invention of constructed sculpture, the co-invention of collage, and for the wide variety of styles that he helped develop and explore. Among his most famous works are the proto-Cubist Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, and Guernica, a dramatic portrayal of the bombing of GuERNica by German and Italian air forces during the Spanish Civil War. Picasso’s work is often categorized into periods. While the names of many of his later periods are debated, the most commonly accepted periods in his work are the Blue Period, the Rose Period, the African-influenced Period, Analytic Cubism, and Synthetic Cubism, also referred to as the Crystal period. He was the first child of Don José Ruiz y Blasco and María Picasso y López. His family was of middle-class background. His father was a painter who specialized in naturalistic depictions of birds and other game. His maternal great-grandfather, Tommaso Picasso, moved to Spain around 1807. His direct branch from Sori, Liguria, can be traced back to Giovanni Battista, married to Isabella Musante, who was Pablo’s great-great-grandmother. The family moved to Barcelona, where Ruiz took a position at its School of Fine Arts.
After her death, Picasso thrived in the city of diphtheria, where he lived with his sister Conchita. In 1895, he was traumatized when his seven-year-old sister died, and vowed to give up painting, though paintings exist from him by him by the time he was 18 years old. He died in Paris, France, at the age of 75. His son became preoccupied with art to the detriment of his classwork. They stayed almost almost a year at the School of School of fine Arts. He later moved to A Coruña, where his father became a professor of art at the University of Lausanne. His work in the mid-1920s often has characteristics of Surrealism, and his later work often combines elements of his earlier styles. His later work is in a neoclassical style, and much of the late 1910s and early 1920s is in the early 20s. In the 1930s and 1940s, his work was in a mid-20s style, with elements of the Surrealistic style. He became one of the best-known figures in 20th-century art, and became a universal renown and immense fortune for his revolutionary artistic accomplishments. The Picasso family lived in Barcelona for most of his adult life. His wife, María, was a curator of a local museum. His children, Pablo and Pablo Jr., were born in Málaga.
