Picasso period español y por eso, según dicen, comenzó a dibujar antes que a hablar. Cuando niño, se sintió atraído de manera instintiva hacia las herramientas del artista. En sus primeros años pasaba horas en feliz concentración dibujando espirales con un sentido y un significado que sólo él conocía. Otras veces dejaba de lado sus juegos infantiles para trazar sus primeras imágenes en l. a. enviornment. Tan temprana expresión artística encerraba l. a. promesa de un raro don. No hay que olvidar hacer mención de Málaga, pues fue ahí donde, el 25 de octubre de 1881, nació Pablo Ruiz Picasso, y fue ahí donde pasó los primeros diez años de su vida. El padre de Picasso period pintor y profesor en los angeles Escuela de Bellas Artes y Oficios. Picasso aprendió de él los rudimentos del entrenamiento académico formal en arte. Luego fue a estudiar a los angeles Academia de las Artes en Madrid, pero no se graduó. Antes de cumplir los dieciocho años había llegado al punto de mayor rebeldía; repudió l. a. estética anémica de los angeles academia junto con l. a. prosa pedestre del realismo y, naturalmente, se unió a aquellos artistas y escritores que se llamaban a sí mismos modernistas, a los inconformistas, aquellos a los que Sabartés llamó “la élite del pensamiento catalán” y que se habían agrupado en torno al café de artistas Els Quatre Gats. Durante 1899 y 1900 los únicos temas que Picasso ponderó meritorios fueron aquellos que reflejaban l. a. “verdad final”, los angeles fugacidad de l. a. vida humana y l. a. inevitabilidad de l. a. muerte. Sus primeras obras, agrupadas bajo el nombre de “Periodo Azul” (1901-1904), consisten en pinturas con matices azulados y fueron el resultado de los angeles influencia de un viaje que realizó por España y de los angeles muerte de su amigo Casagemas. Aunque Picasso mismo insistió varias veces en l. a. naturaleza subjetiva e interna de su Periodo Azul, su génesis y, en especial, el azul monocromático se explicaron durante muchos años como el uncomplicated resultado de varias influencias estéticas. Entre 1905 y 1907, Picasso inició un nuevo periodo, conocido como el “Periodo Rosa”, que se caracterizó por un estilo más alegre con colores rosados y anaranjados. En Gosol, en el verano de 1906, los angeles forma del desnudo femenino asumió una importancia extraordinaria para Picasso. l. a. importancia que los desnudos femeninos tendrían para Picasso en cuanto a temática durante los siguientes meses se hizo patente cuando creó l. a. composición de una pintura grande titulada Las señoritas de Aviñón. De l. a. misma manera que el arte africano se considera como el issue que llevó al desarrollo de l. a. estética clásica de Picasso en 1907, las lecciones de Cézanne se perciben como los angeles piedra angular de este nuevo avance. Después de su periodo cubista, en los angeles década de 1920, Picasso volvió a un estilo artístico más figurativo y se acercó más al movimiento surrealista. characterizeó cuerpos monstruosos y distorsionados, pero en un estilo muy own. Después del bombardeo de Guernica en 1937, Picasso creó una de sus obras más famosas, que se convirtió en símbolo crudo de los horrores de esa guerra y, de hecho, de todas las guerras. En los angeles década de 1960, su estilo artístico cambió de nuevo y Picasso comenzó a volver los angeles mirada al arte de los grandes maestros y a basar sus pinturas en los angeles obra de Velázquez, Poussin, Goya, Manet, Courbet y Delacroix. Los últimos trabajos de Picasso fueron una mezcla de estilos que dio lugar a una obra más colorida, expresiva y optimista. Picasso murió en 1973, en su villa de Mougins. El simbolista ruso Georgy Chulkov escribió: “La muerte de Picasso es una tragedia. Sin embargo, aquellos que creen que pueden imitar a Picasso y aprender de él son ciegos e inocentes. ¿Aprender qué? Estas formas no tienen una contraparte emocional fuera del infierno, pero estar en el infierno significa anticipar los angeles muerte. Los cubistas difícilmente cuentan con un conocimiento tan ilimitado”.
