Picasso life and works

Pablo Picasso Pablo Picasso was born in Malaga, Spain on October 25, 1881.
By the age of 15 he was already technically skilled in drawing and
painting. Picasso’s original style continuously evolved throughout his
long career, and expanded the definition of what art could be. In addition
to painting, he explored sculpture, ceramics and other art forms, and
became one of the most influential artists of the 1900s. Paintings from
Picasso’s blue period, which was from 1901 to 1904, depicted forlorn
people painted in shades of blue, evoking feelings of sadness and
alienation. The suicide of a fellow painter, Carles Casagemas, had a
profound effect on Picasso, and it has been said that the tragic event
precipitated the adoption of a predominately somber blue palette. An
example of Picasso's blue period paintings is "Woman with Bangs." This
painting symbolizes Picasso's production in this period. It is showing a
dark-haired woman with downcast, unfocused eyes lost in a reverie. The
simplicity of her surroundings and attire give emphasis to her face, with
its expression of profound dejection. With his permanent return to France
in 1904, Picasso's colors gradually changed, evolving into the delicate
pink and flesh tones of his Rose Period, which prevailed during the next
two years. Picasso’s rose period paintings took on a warmer more
optimistic mood. An example of a painting done during his rose period is
;Mother and Child.; This painting, which is more a drawing in oil,
captures a tender moment between mother and child. Both in composition and
in theme, the work is reminiscent of Renaissance paintings of the Madonna.
