  7. Lottie Parker is right all of history is “written by the victors” and most is corrupt, look at the USA it is so corrupt in the past that the president and congress threw out the constitution (Alien and Sedition Acts). So don’t blame him. (by the way I am not unamerican most people are unamerican because they are unwilling to admit mistakes and corruption and recongnize the problems)(remember the quote “those who do not learn from the past are doomed to repeat it”)(I like to show evidence)

    Life Events

    After visiting an exhibition of children’s drawings: “When I was their age I could draw like Raphael, but it took me a lifetime to learn to draw like them.”

    “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”

    Pablo Picasso had several distinct phases during his long career, including his Blue Period, and his later Rose Period. He began his blue paintings in 1901 reflecting his sadness at a friend’s death. Directly after his Blue Period, Picasso moved on to his Rose Period in 1905. One of Picasso’s most creative phases took place between 1908 and 1912 and is known as Analytical Cubism.

    In the first six years in Paris, Picasso moved from the Toulouse Lautrec “cabaret style” of painting (1901) to the Blue Period (1901-1904) to the Rose Period (1904-1907) and then the Cubist Period (1907-1917). For the rest of his life–from age twenty six to ninety two–he was to frequent these styles again and again!

  12. Impressionism the imitation of moving life captured on a painting . Abstract ; the divine shapes of geometry , to hide the meaning of life . Fine art ; the capture of a persons soul in a picture . Put them together , and you get a wonderful conundrum of paintings , with a different blueprint hidden in every object and person !! Pablo Picasso – more to his work than meets the eye . The levels of meaning are still unfounded !

  13. that was so interesting and unique thanks Pablo Picasso song[you are the one who changed the world the one who madeeeee famous paintingsssssssssssssssssssssss]REST IN PEACE PABLO PICASSO.
