Description - Tate Introductions: Picasso by Silvia Loreti
Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) was one of the most influential artists of the twentieth-century, working in an unprecedented variety of styles. A Spanish painter, sculptor, etcher, lithographer, ceramist and designer who spent most of his adult life in France, he is known for co-founding the cubist movement, the invention of constructed sculpture, the coinvention of collage, and for the wide variety of styles that he helped develop and explore.
Exceptionally prolific throughout the course of his long life, Picasso achieved universal renown and immense fortune for his revolutionary artistic accomplishments, and became one of the most famous figures of his era.
Part of the Tate Introduction series, this book offers a concise and engaging account of Picasso's life and the key aspects of his prolific career.
