About the book
An icon of modernity, Pablo Picasso is considered to be the most influential artist of the 20th century. Incredibly talented, the creator of Les Demoiselles d'Avignon and Guernica broke with all the cultural conventions of the time and established new aesthetic paradigms that marked a turning point in the history of art.
Picasso's talent was already apparent in his childhood and adolescence, when he learnt to master the techniques of the great masters of painting. In a gradual way, the artist worked on his own pictorial language, in a complex process of experimentation that led to the creation of Cubism, the revolutionary style with which Picasso became world famous.
This book gathers the main works of Picasso exhibited in the Museo Picasso of Barcelona, a centre of reference in order to understand the origin of one of the most versatile artists in history. The book starts with Picasso's first artistic forays up to his mature works, passing through the Blue Period, the Rose Period and Cubism. This way, the reader obtains a complete overview of the great Malagan painter, a unique artist that left an indelible print on modern art.
