Pablo Picasso on his father painter and arts teacher José Ruiz Blasco All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up. Pablo Picasso The Genius of the Century Pablo Picasso, born in Málaga in 1881, started to paint at the early age of seven and a mere two years later completed his first oil painting, Le Picador. It was the start of an unequalled artistic career whose beginnings got underway in his fathers painting classes. Its first highlights occurred with his blue and pink period from 1901 to 1906, when Picasso combined the achievements of Art Nouveau with the image contents of Symbolism to result in a tangible formula.
Only one year later, Picasso and his work Les Demoiselles dAvignon (1907), characterised by geometric cshape, became the spiritual father of Cubism and a pioneer of modernism. Until his death in 1973 in Mougins, France, the artistic genius of the twentieth century produced more than 50,000 works ranging from drawings to ceramics and from poetry to sculpture and painting. These works include the dove of peace and his most famous work, Guernica, which depicted the destruction of the city of the same name during the Spanish Civil War. It was displayed for the first time at the International Fair in Paris in 1937, where it received the highest accolades. Even today, we are still impressed by the unique language of the shapes that will endure forever, along with their legendary creator, Pablo Picasso.Just as the painter Picasso, the poet Picasso also had a close connection between his art subjects and Spain. With untamed passion and near-insanely associative images, he built a literary legancy of unique value between 1935 and 1959. Refusing to be bound any classification and far from grammatical rules, this extraordinary artist wrote three plays , as well as 300 poem that were created in diary notes and range from simple prose to expressionist short texts. Picassos impressive literary legancy was published for the first time in 1973, taking the reader onto a fascinating journey to sensual levels of unique poetry and surprising diversity based on something very special: the love of the Painter of the century for the written word.
