Artistic genius Pablo Picasso (1881 – 1973) co-founded Cubism and produced a monumental 20,000 artworks during his 70-year career. Picasso’s torrential outpouring of work was so extensive and complex that art historians have divided it into individual periods. A prodigy in his youth, Picasso enrolled in advanced classes at Barcelona’s Royal Academy of Art at age 15.

Passionately creative in every genre from primitive art to sketches to Surrealism, Picasso profoundly impacted 20th century art.
