Pablo Picasso Quotes

Date of Birth: October 02, 1881   Date of Death: April 09, 1973

At a very early age Pablo Picasso showed an interest in art, which led his father to teach him art in drawing and painting from the age of seven.  Most of Picasso’s works were considered to be radical.  He developed a style of painting that is called cubism, which is the taking apart of objects to analyze them by their shapes.  He also used fragments of papers and put them together to use as collages in fine art.  Pablo Picasso is said to be the greatest artist of the twentieth century and has made great contributions to the development of modern art.  A famous quote of his is “Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth."
