Pablo Picasso (October 25, 1881 to April 8, 1973) He was a Spanish expatriate painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist and stage designer considered one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century and the co-creator, along with Georges Braque, of Cubism. Pablo Picasso remains renowned for endlessly reinventing himself, switching between styles so radically different that his life's work seems to be the product of five or six great artists rather than just one. Art critics and historians typically break Pablo Picasso's adult career into distinct periods:
• Blue Period (1901-1904): 'Blue Nude’ and ‘The Old Guitarist’.
• Rose Period(1904-1906): 'Gertrude Stein' and 'Two Nudes' • Cubism(1918 and 1927): ‘Les Desmoiselles d’Avignon’.
• Classical Period(between 1918 and 1927): ‘Three Women at the Spring’.
• Surrealism Period(1918-1945): ‘Guernica’
• Later Works(30 June 1972): ‘Self Portrait Facing Death’
