Pablo Picasso Famous Paintings

Pablo Picasso was Spanish painter and one of the most famous painters of the 20th century. This sentence was proved in Times magazine and art gallery Saatchi research. There were more than 1.4 million participants in this six-week-long research and the majority said that Pablo Picasso was the most important painter of the last century. His talent was exceptional since early childhood. His first word was "piz", short for “lapis”, which is Spanish word for pencil. When he was born he could not breathe, so cigarette smoke was blown into his nose. After he coincidentally completed his father's picture of pigeons, his father gave him all his brushes, paints and palettes and he had never painted again because the Pablo’s paintings was amazingly beautiful. Pablo Picasso was married twice and had many mistresses. He had four children. His last child, Paloma, was born when he was 68 years.

There are many Pablo Picasso famous paintings, but the most famous are: Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, Guernica, Portrait of Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler, Portrait of Igor Stravinsky, Dora Maar au Chat, Massacre in Korea, Three Musicians, Nude Woman with a Necklace and more than six thousands other paintings, drawings and sculptures. Pablo Picasso famous paintings belong to more creative periods: Blue Period, Rose Period, African-influenced Period, Classicism, Surrealism and Expressionism. There is almost no visual field in which Picasso has not expressed his artistic creative genius. He was engaged in painting on canvas and on walls, sculptures, prints and ceramics, collages and posters – and all of this was extraordinary.

The Young Ladies of Avignon

When it comes to Pablo Picasso famous paintings, Les Demoiselles d'Avignon is clearly the most famous one. It is the revolutionary oil on canvas by Pablo Picasso, who painted it from June to July in 1907. This painting is considered to be the first Cubist, avant-garde and generally the first modern painting ever. The Young Ladies of Avignon with five female nudes and still life was a true revolutionary painting when it comes to art. Picasso called this picture after a brothel in Avignon Street (Carrer d'Avinyo) in Barcelona. The painting is now in the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, thanks to the Lillie P. Bliss Besquet. Picasso painted this picture in the spirit of earlier artistic aspirations of art history, presenting a traditional theme of a female nude. It is truly the most famous of all Pablo Picasso famous paintings.
