Portraits of an Artist: Pablo Picasso

Picasso by Juan Gris

He was the Minotaur, the playboy of his era, he made the rules to break the rules, he was selfish yet a genius, he had no set style but a thousand styles, he was not Pablo, only Picasso. Pablo Ruiz y Picasso (aka Pablo Picasso) was born in Málaga, Spain on October 25, 1881. A child prodigy, at 20 years old Picasso left Spain for Paris to become a distinguished artist. For Picasso, to succeed in Paris would be to conquer the world.
