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.
