Pablo Ruiz Picasso born (1881-1973) was a Spanish painter and sculptor. He is considered one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. His full name was Pablo Diego Jose Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno Maria de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santisima Trinidad Clito Ruiz y Picasso. He is best known as the co-founder of cubism. Cubism is when the artist breaks up objects and re-assembles them in abstract and geometric form. Pablo Picasso created over 20,000 pictures. Picasso could draw and paint when he was very young. His first word was lapiz, the Spanish word for pencil. Perhaps his most famous painting is Guernica which shows the horrors of war after the bombing of the town of Guernica. He was 90 years old when a number of his works were shown in an exhibition at the Louvre in Paris. He was the first living artist to have an exhibition at the Louvre. Picasso had four children with three women. He died of heart failure in 1973.
