Pablo Picasso

This short biography of Pablo Picasso will give you a glimpse of who Picasso was, both as an artist and as a human being. Picasso lived a colorful life, full of rich experiences, which can be traced back in his paintings.


Picasso was born in 1881 in Spain as Pablo Ruiz Picasso. His father taught drawing at a local Fine Arts school, which is how Picasso started drawing at a very young age. In 1895, Picasso's father got a job at the School of Fine Arts in Barcelona. The teachers immediately saw the little boy’s talent and Picasso was accepted into the school and passed with excellent results. At the age of 15, Picasso's famous oil painting “The First Communion” went on display in an exhibition in Barcelona. A year later, his painting “Science and Charity” won a competition in Malaga.

George Condo

Picasso once said, “Good artists borrow, great artists steal.” Indeed, American artist George Condo frequently cites Picasso as an explicit source in his contemporary cubist compositions and joyous use of paint. Condo is known for neo-Modernist compositions staked in wit and the grotesque, which draw the eye into a highly imaginary world. Condo came up in the New York art world at a time when art favored brazen innuendo and shock. Student to Warhol, best friend to Basquiat and collaborator with William S. Burroughs, Condo tracked a different path. He was drawn to the endless inquiries posed by the aesthetics and formal considerations of Caravaggio, Rembrandt and the Old Masters.
