Pablo Picasso Artist Biography
Born in 1881 in the Andalusian region of Spain, Pablo Picasso was a Spanish painter, sculptor, printmaker, stage designer, poet, and playwright who spent most of his adult life in France. Considered on of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century, he is known for his help in founding the Cubist movement and a wide variety of techniques and styles that he helped develop and explore. He demonstrated extraordinary artistic talent in his early years, painting in a naturalistic manner before drastically changing his style in the first decade of the 20th century.
Analytic Cubism (1909 - 1912) is a stye of painting that was developed by Picasso and George Braque using monochrome neutral colors. The technique was to take apart objects and "analyze" them in terms of their shapes. Synthetic Cubism (1912 - 1919) was a further development of the genre, in which cut paper fragments - often wallpaper or portions of newspaper pages - were arranged and pasted into compositions, marking the first use of collage in fine art.
At the time of Picasso's death many of his paintings were in his possession, as he had kept off the art market what he did not need to sell. Several of his paintings are ranked among the most expensive paintings in the world, with one reaching $104 million at a Sotheby's auction in 2004. More of his paintings have been stolen than any other artist's, with a staggering 550 pieces listed as missing.
