Famous In This Field:
Pablo Picasso was born 25th October 1881. He died on the 18th April 1973. He was born in Málaga, Spain.
Regarded as one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, he is known for co-founding the Cubist movement and the invention of constructed sculpture.
After 1906, the Fauvist work of the slightly older artist Henri Matisse motivated Picasso to explore more radical styles, beginning a fruitful rivalry between the two artists, who subsequently were often paired by critics as the leaders of modern art.
During the Second World War, Picasso remained in Paris while the Germans occupied the city. Picasso's artistic style did not fit the Nazi ideal of art, so he did not exhibit during this time.
