Pablo_Picasso,_1904,_Paris,_photograph_by_Ricard_Canals_i_Llambí.jpg

When Pablo Picasso was only 19 years old, the Spaniard’s art was exhibited for the first time in Paris, France. They displayed 75 of his pieces that “offered moody, representational paintings by a young artist with obvious talent.”

Throughout his life, Picasso created “50,000 paintings, drawings, engravings, sculptures, and ceramics,” and continues to be one of the most well know artists in history.
