Pablo Picasso was born in Spain in 1881 and grew up to be one the most renowned painters and sculptors in the world. He is best known as the father of the Cubist movement, which became popular in France in the early 1900s.
Cubism depicts objects from many different viewpoints, breaking the subject into shallow planes and apparently random angles. His "Violin and Guitar" is an excellent example of cubism.
Picasso incorporated many different styles in his paintings, which are among the most expensive. In 2004, Picasso's "Boy With a Pipe" sold for more than $104 million at auction.
His most popular prints include "Le Vieux Guitariste," "Don Quixote," "Cote D'Azur" and "Petite Fleurs." Although Picasso died in 1973, his works are still quite sought-after.
