#2. Pablo Picasso

Pablo Picasso Printable (** for premium members only)

Born October 25, 1881 in Malaga, Spain, Pablo Picasso became the defining artist of the twentieth century. As I learned about his life, I was struck by the observation that Picasso was blessed with parents who recognized his gift at an early age. Learn more about the man and his art at the following five sites.

Met Museum: Pablo Picasso
“The artistic genius of Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) has impacted the development of modern and contemporary art with unparalleled magnitude. His prolific output includes over 20,000 paintings, prints, drawings, sculptures, ceramics, theater sets and costumes that convey myriad intellectual, political, social, and amorous messages.” Visit the Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History for a slideshow and an excellent Picasso biography.

MOMA: Pablo Picasso
At first glance, this bio seems really brief, but if you look in the right-hand corner below the slideshow, you’ll see a dropdown box that provides navigation to the rest of the Picasso biography. “Picasso never taught, but from the moment that he entered into an artistic dialogue with his contemporaries through Cubism he attracted numerous followers. Cubism not only became a stylistic formula that others continued to exploit, but also a springboard for sculptural developments by artists such as Tatlin and Lipchitz and an influence on artists as diverse as Duchamp and Matisse.”

Museu Picasso de Barcelona
As with any museum site, if you are not visiting in real life, you need to jump around the site to find the virtual exhibits. Here you’ll find them under the menu items: The Collection, Exhibitions, and Pablo Picasso. Highlights include a timeline of Picasso’s time in Barcelona, an excellent collection of Picasso links, and a great quote section (all listed under Pablo Picasso.)
“Everyone wants to understand painting. Why not try to understand the songs of a bird?”
