Picasso’s Style Changed the History of Art The world’s greatest artist, Pablo Ruiz Picasso was born on October 25th, 1881, in Malaga, Spain. Picasso was exposed to art at an early age, his father taught drawing at a local school of Fine Arts and Crafts, his early exposure may be one of the reasons why Picasso had an advantage over other artists. Picasso studied art at the School of Fine Arts in La Coruna, and then later at the Royal Academy of San Fernando, however he never officially finished any schooling. Even without officially finishing any art school, he is responsible for the development of cubism and the overall transcendence of art throughout the times. Creating more art than any other artist in history, and working in more areas than just painting including sculpture, paper mache and collage work. Picasso was always creating a new master piece for the world to enjoy (Picasso, 2010). In this paper I will explore three of Picasso’s pieces of art, Les Demoiselles d Avignon, Guernica, and Three Musicians explaining the content, meaning, and contribution of the pieces to the history of art. I will also explain what the pieces meant to me and why it interested me, along with what the painting portrays about the artist. Picasso’s style was very unique and he was not afraid to express himself through his works. Although many artists have left their contributions throughout art history and the humanities, Pablo Picasso’s contributions far exceed many if not all of them. His bold artistic style of Cubism paired with his ability to always be unique paved the way for future artists of our time and changed the history of art forever.
