Pablo Picasso

Pablo Picasso is one of the most celebrated painters of the twentieth century. Early on he showed exceptional talent - so much so that - his father, a drawing master, solemnly presented him with his own palette and brushes. After studying in Barcelona, where his father taught, he moved to Paris in 1904, but kept his Spanish citizenship. In Paris he was stimulated by the various artistic movements of the time, and he would experiment with an impressive array of different styles and media throughout his life.
