The Spanish painter Pablo Picasso, born in Malaga, is probably one of the most famous modern artists. His extensive oeuvre includes paintings, drawings, sculptures, prints, commercial art and illustrations Initially traditionally academically trained, Picasso turned to the avant-garde during stays in Paris. His painting “Les Demoiselles d’Avignon” founded Cubism in 1906, later he also explored surrealism and, throughout his life, developed his own style. Picasso died in 1973 in Mougins, France.
