Pablo Picasso:His Life & Work

Pablo Picasso: His Life and Work

If it was necessary to sum up the art of the 20th-century in only one name, this would be undoubtedly that of Pablo Picasso (1881-1973). His work, multiple, and unmistakable, represents the complexity of one century that transformed radically the idea of art. This course will trace the personality of Picasso in both his biographical and artistic aspects, to understand his different stylistic stages within the context of the society and history of his times and, finally, to value his projection and influence in the art of the 20th-century.
