The human body, and especially the face, has always been one of the greatest inspirations for Picasso. A great experimentator and innovator, he explored these subjects in every medium he touched, from drawing and painting to ceramics, often searching for the very basics of what makes an expression expressive. We know that Picasso was a fervent analyst of the visual world, learning about his reductions and abstractions of different subjects from a large number of his drawings and sketches. Aware of his thorough and synoptic approach, we can read through the simplicity and imagine the great artist studying the face in search of this essential expression. His genius is hidden within this deceptive simplicity, while his skill shines through every line, curve, and void. The piece comes in professional, safe packaging.
A man of unparalleled talent, Pablo Picasso was the most influential figure in the 20th-century art. With an unequivocal sense of invention, he was devoted to creating art throughout his life, crossing media with utter ease and elegance, always following his limitless imagination as the ultimate indicator of truth. Together with Georges Braque, Picasso fathered one of the most progressive art movements - Cubism, rethinking the representation of the three-dimensional space on a two-dimensional surface in a radical way. Inspired by the art of Africa and the Iberian peninsula, his ideas and works left a deep mark on other modernist movements, including Expressionism and Surrealism. His most famous work, the powerful “Guernica” (1937), was created in reaction to the Spanish Civil War, today celebrated as the supreme example of anti-war art. Resolute and vital throughout his life, Picasso left behind a colossal body of work of paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, ceramics, costumes and stage set designs.
With a name synonymous with greatness, Picasso is considered a legend. He was infamous for his many passionate relationships with women, as well as for his charisma. With an ego to match his gift, the great artist once said about himself: “My mother said to me, 'If you are a soldier, you will become a general. If you are a monk, you will become the Pope.' Instead, I was a painter, and became Picasso.”
Pablo Picasso was born in Málaga, Spain, in 1881. He lived in Paris and Mougins, France, where he died in 1973.
