Pablo Picasso

Pablo Picasso (/pɪˈkɑːs, -ˈkæs/; Spanish: [ˈpaβlo piˈkaso]; 25 October 1881 – 8 April 1973) was a Spanish painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist, stage designer, poet and playwright who spent most of his adult life in France. Regarded as one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, he 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. Among his most famous works are the proto-Cubist Les Demoiselles d'Avignon (1907), and Guernica (1937), a dramatic portrayal of the bombing of Guernica by the German and Italian airforces.

This is Picasso's first proto-cubist painting known as the young ladies of Avignon. A few of his main influences were ancient Iberian statues (Spanish primitive art) and African tribal masks. The size, format, composition, and design were influenced by an old master's painting called The Opening of the Fifth Seal painted by El Greco, which Picasso studied while working on the young ladies of Avignon. Picasso was impacted by Henri Matisse's painting le bonheur de vivre because of the theme.
