Our first artist this year is Pablo Picasso. Pablo lived form 1881-1973. His full name was Pablo Diego Jose Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno Maria de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santisima Trinidad Ruiz Picasso. WSHEWWW! Is that a mouthful! Thank goodness we can just call him Picasso!
We learned that Pablo Picasso was one of the artists that developed the style of art called cubism. At first we thought it was kind of strange but the more we looked at it, the more we enjoyed it.
We also learned that when Picasso was very sad he would use a lot of blue in his work. They called this his “blue period.” After looking at his blue artwork, we thought that blue made his artwork look sad also. What do you think?
Pablo died at the age of 91 in 1973. Although he is no longer alive, he will live on for years to come because of his many styles of art.
