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 always had a very deep and inspiring bond with women. Some of his relationship were truly defining for him as these women were a real catalyst in his development as an artist. Each stands for a different period in his career, representing a complementary or opposing ideal that inspired the evolution of a new visual language. Just as they became obsessively involved with him, so he was dependent on them. Passionate in love and passionate in art, sometimes a sensitive lover that could be also very brutal, yet Picasso was always real. His drawing, painting, and sculpting enabled him to explore his passion for the opposite sex, and when he was striving to portray his model, he would not limit himself to the way she looked, he would try to express the totality of his feeling toward her. It seemed to be a drive that never decreased as Picasso had the same intensity in his relationships with his muses until the end of his life.

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.
