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.
