Pablo Picasso

Pablo Picasso is a famous artist. He was born in 1881 and died in 1973. He painted lots of pictures, like El Bobo which was painted in 1959 in Spain.

Picasso started a new technique, cubism. Cubism is when you paint different parts of an object separately and puts them back together. For example Marie Therese Walter was painted using cubism (shown below).

My favourite painting by Picasso is El Bobo (shown at top) because he looks hilarious and weird and Pablo did use cubism in it.Pablo’s mum says Picasso’s first words were “piz, piz”, which is short for lapiz and Spanish for ‘pencil’. If you want to see more Pablo paintings, google Self portrait, Old guitarist, Three musicians, Still life with guitar, Mary Therese Walter, and The doves. You might think his paintings are weird and ugly. Well, they are close to the most expensive things in the world! If you want to make your own Picasso-based painting visit
