Pablo Picasso Biography

Birthday: October 25, 1881
Birthplace: Malaga, Spain

Pablo Picasso's Colorful Childhood

Picasso was the son of a Spanish art teacher. He painted and drew from an early age (he even painted his sister with egg yolks) and when he was 14 he applied to a prestigious art school called La Coruna, which is in Barcelona, and was accepted. The school soon recognized his talents and they skipped him ahead two classes. His father is said to have been so impressed by Picasso's talents that he gave Pablo his brushes and vowed never to paint again.

Pablo Picasso Hits it Big

Pablo Picasso's journey to becoming one of the most famous artists of all time began at a small art exhibition in 1901. It didn't get very good reviews and he was even accused of being pretty unoriginal. Picasso moved to Paris in 1904, where he continued painting and began sculpting and even designing costumes for the ballet. Picasso's work slowly gained recognition - eventually he became the most famous living artist ever.

Pablo Picasso's Legacy

Picasso was the single greatest influence on art of the 20th century. His drawings were known for their clarity, subtlety and simplicity. Picasso was not only known for the quality of his work, he was also known for the quantity - he produced hundreds of works in his lifetime.

God moves in a mysterious way, His wonders to perform; He plants his footsteps in the sea, And rides upon the storm. Deep in unfathomable mines Of never-failing skill, He treasures up his bright designs, And works his sov’reign will. Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take, The clouds ye so much dread Are big with mercy, and shall break In blessings on your head. Judge not the Lord by feeble sense, But trust him for his grace; Behind a frowning providence He hides a smiling face. His purposes will ripen fast, Unfolding ev’ry hour; The bud may have a bitter taste, But sweet will be the flow’r. Blind unbelief is sure to err, And scan his work in vain; God is his own interpreter, And he will make it plain.
