Born in Malaga in 1881, Pablo Picasso could supposedly draw since before he could walk. The great artist created thousands of works, including abstract paintings that have redefined painting as an art form. By the time he was 13, he had already mastered his father who was an art teacher. As a result, his father presumably handed over his palette and brushes to young Pablo and swore to never paint again.
Picasso himself once said that he could very much draw like Raphael when he was young but that it took him his whole life to learn how to draw like a child, the type of unbridled creativity that helped him create some truly amazing masterpieces. Let us then focus on the ten most famous Pablo Picasso artworks that the great man created throughout his long career.
Currently displayed at the New Yok Museum of Modern Art, this particular piece portrays a Harlequin, a Pierrot, and a monk. These characters are believed to represent Picasso, Guillaume Apollinaire, and Max Jacob, who were all friends of Picasso during the 1910s. This is also quite a large painting that measures more than two meters in width and height, one that Pablo painted in the summer of 1921.
