Pablo Picasso was a Spanish painter and sculptor, known to be one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century. His style is characterized by his free spirit, eccentric style, and complete disregard for criticism to his work. His modern approach to painting was considered to be far ahead of his time. Picasso was arguably the first artist to have such a profound impact on the art world.

Picasso was a versatile artist who continued to experiment with new styles and techniques his whole life (he lived for 91 years). During his later years Picasso became politically involved and joined with the Peace Movement, expressing a deep desire for peace, international understanding and equality.  Picasso ""˜Dove of Peace' became the international emblem of the Peace Movement and a symbol of hope.

Picasso
Pablo Picasso was a Spanish painter and sculptor, who remains one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century. He is mostly recognized for the Cubist movement, which he co-founded with Georges Braque. Eventually, his masterpiece Guernica is a pivotal example of this. Firstly, Guernica displays the intense horror of the Spanish civil war and its impact on the city of Guernica. Then, Pablo's exceptional style helped the world understand the horrors of the war. Finally, it also brought Spain into the forefront of the European mind. Through Cubism, Picasso showed the world how two-dimensional art could be seen in a number of ways. The dimensions and angles are an abstraction of all the essential features of a scene with only their base shapes. Picasso's style transpires his free spirit, eccentricity, and a complete disregard for any criticism of his work. In addition, this modern approach to painting far ahead of his time supported Picasso’s indelible impact on the art world to this very day.
