Facts About Pablo Picasso

interesting facts

Pablo Picasso was born in Spain on 25th October, 1881. His full name was “Pablo Diego Jose Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Martyr Patricio Clito Ruíz y Picasso”. He was born as tiny and weak baby. They thought that he was dead, but his uncle, a doctor named Don Salvador, blew cigar smoke in his face. Little baby Picasso coughed and declared his rightful place on this planet.

While living in Paris (1900) Pablo had financial problems and was forced to burn many of his paintings to stay warm. Later in life he was paying his bills with simple signature written on piece of paper containing only one word: Picasso. Besides his wives he had many mistresses and some of them very young. Pablo loved to work with the candle light. His first exhibit was at the age of thirteen, but first recorded painting was at the age of nine. Interesting fact is that Steve Wynn, owner of the Picasso’s famed “Dream” painting, poke the hole accidentally through the multimillion dollar painting while showing his friends portrait of Picasso’s mistress Marie-Therese Walter.

  5. Dear Lottie Parker,
    I am sad to inform you that no one cares about your pathetic life.
    You probably live alone with 6549846 cats.
    You probably eat stale cheese and soggy waffles out of McDonald’s dumpsters.

These facts were amazing. my favorite painting of his is nude from behind. BEAUTIFUL. thank you so much pablo. I also like Mi Pueblo which sounds like pablo. I love you

  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)

  11. Pablo Ruiz y Picasso

    born: Malaga, Spain; 25 October 1881
    died: Mougins, France; 8 April 1973
    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.
