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.
9Girl Before A Mirror
This particular piece was painted by Picasso in March, 1932. It depicts Marie-Therese Walter who Picasso met during the early 1930s, a girl who would become one of his favorite subjects over the next couple of years. Pablo painted Marie-Therese many times over the years, a muse that when portrayed in ‘Girl Before A Mirror’ hints at erotic interpretations, which isn’t all that common for Picasso’s paintings.
