Pablo Picasso

Biography

Pablo Ruiz Picasso is probably the most important figure in 20th Century art. Time magazine art critic Robert Hughes once said that “To say that Pablo Picasso dominated Western art in the 20th century is, by now, the merest commonplace. Before his 50th birthday, the little Spaniard from Malaga had become the very prototype of the modern artist as public figure. No painter before him had had a mass audience in his own lifetime.”
