Pablo Picasso


Pablo Picasso is the artist I have chosen for October. He was born on October 25, 1881 in M├ílaga, Spain. He began drawing at an early age. His style developed from his Blue Period (1901–04) to his Rose Period (1905) and to Cubism (just to name a few). Picasso also made the first collage. He designed jewelry, did paintings, created sculptures, and made posters and pottery. He created such an amazing volume of work that I think he is the most influential artist of his time.
Picasso continued his prolific work in painting, drawing, printmaking, ceramics, and sculpture until his death on April 8, 1973.
