Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) was a Spanish painter, stage designer, and sculptor. An incredibly talented man, he tried his hand at many different artistic styles throughout his life, including realism, classicism and surrealism; however he is most remembered for being a co-pioneer of cubism with French artist Georges Braque. Several specific "periods" into which his work is classified include his Blue Period, during which time he preferred to draw mothers and children in bluish and greenish hues, and his Rose Period, which featured more lively subjects such as acrobats and harlequins. He is considered to be one of the greatest and most influential 20th century artists, and is especially remembered for his portrayal of the bombing of Guernica during the Spanish Civil War in his 1937 piece, "Guernica."
