Pablo Picasso (1881 - 1973)
Pablo Picasso was a Spanish painter, sculptor, print-maker, ceramicist, stage designer, poet, and playwright who spent most of his adult life in France. Picasso's family was of middle-class background. His father was a painter who specialized in naturalistic depictions of birds and other game. Regarded as one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century, Picasso is known for co-founding the Cubist movement, the invention of constructed sculpture, the co-invention of collage, and for the wide variety of styles that he helped develop and explore. Picasso's final works were a mixture of styles, his means of expression in constant flux until the end of his life. Devoting his full energies to his work, Picasso became more daring, his works more colorful and expressive. (abstracted from Wikipedia)
