Inspired by Picasso

As the first artist to be exhibited at the Louvre during his lifetime, Pablo Picasso not only revolutionized modern art but also laid the foundations for contemporary art. He devoted himself to all forms of art, and it was this creative productivity and ability to constantly renew his style that made him one of the greatest artists of his century.

Picasso was only 20 when he left his native Spain for Paris. As soon as he arrived, he abandoned the academic training received at the Spanish school of fine arts, launching instead into personal projects. He was greatly inspired by the Impressionists, notably Cézanne, Van Gogh and Degas, but would be later hugely influenced by a tragedy that would ensue; the suicide of his childhood friend Carlos Casagemas. This event marked the beginning of his “Blue Period", where he aimed to convey a melancholic world populated with distressed characters. Only later would Picasso's works regain life: filled with images of harlequins, acrobats and mothers with their children. These more delicate and cheerful paintings belonged to Picasso's “Rose Period", which would give a breath of fresh air to his research. The influence of primitive art would also considerably change his style.

The creation of The Young Ladies of Avignon in 1907 marks the artistic revolution of Picasso as this is the beginning of Cubism; a movement which takes the art world by storm. Picasso develops this style alongside Braque, where reality is fragmented, deformed and recreated according to their preferences. Despite the growth of geometrisation, Picasso only grazes abstraction without ever actually touching it, as there is always an element that links his works back to reality. Initially a simple experiment by Picasso and Braque, Cubism becomes a real artistic art movement and is followed by a number of artists. However Picasso wouldn't settle with just Cubism, his creative streak would lead him to creating an incredibly diverse range of works for the rest of his life. For a while, classicism continuously reappeared in his works, yet the distortion of reality is Picasso's signature. Cubism and Surrealism are evident in his famous portraits including The Kiss the The Dream, where he depicts multiple perspectives of the face. He also covered current affairs in his works, denouncing in particular the destruction of war with incredible pieces such as the famous Guernica and Dove of Peace.

No medium escaped Picasso's artistic exploration, whether it be painting, engraving, drawing or sculpture, he devoted himself to all forms of art. He created various works: pushing boundaries with the avant-garde, and straddling several movements and techniques in a single work of art. His influences vary from Matisse to Gauguin, from Ingres to primitive art, all ultimately resulting in works that have massively inspired the world of modern and contemporary art. Picasso provided the artists that came after him with an incredible catalogue of material; whether they are inspired directly by his works or belong to the movements influenced by Picasso, many talented artists are continuing the great Spanish master's work.
