Meaning of Picasso, Pablo in English:

Picasso, Pablo

Pronunciation /pɪˈkasəʊ/

proper noun

  • (1881–1973), Spanish painter, sculptor, and graphic artist, resident in France from 1904.

Picasso's prolific inventiveness and technical versatility made him the dominant figure in avant-garde art in the first half of the 20th century. Following his Blue Period (1901–4) and Rose Period (1905–6), Les Demoiselles d'Avignon (1907) signalled his development of cubism (1908–14). In the 1920s and 1930s he adopted a neoclassical figurative style and produced semi-surrealist paintings using increasingly violent imagery, notably The Three Dancers (1935) and Guernica (1937)
