Pablo Picasso Infinity

“I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it”. Pablo Picasso

Pablo Ruiz y Picasso, also known as Pablo Picasso (25 October 1881 – 8 April 1973), was a Spanish painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist, stage designer, poet and playwright who spent most of his adult life in France. As one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century, he is known for co-founding the Cubist movement, the invention of constructed sculpture, the co-invention of collage, and for the wide variety of styles that he helped develop and explore. Among his most famous works are the proto-Cubist Les Demoiselles d’Avignon (1907), and Guernica (1937), a portrayal of the German bombing of Guernica during the Spanish Civil War.

Art

“The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls”. Pablo Picasso.

“Drawing is the honesty of the art. There is no possibility of cheating. It is either good or bad”. Salvador Dali

“The true work of art is but a shadow of the divine perfection”. Michelangelo

“No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist”. Oscar Wilde

Picasso demonstrated extraordinary artistic talent in his early years, painting in a realistic manner through his childhood and adolescence. During the first decade of the 20th century, his style changed as he experimented with different theories, techniques, and ideas.

Child

“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up”. Pablo Picasso

“Free the child’s potential, and you will transform him into the world”. Maria Montessori

“Let us be men with men, and always children before God; for in His eyes we are but children. Old age itself, in presence of eternity, is but the first moment of a morning”. Joseph Joubert

“It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child”. Pablo Picasso


Creativity

“Some painters transform the sun into a yellow spot, others transform a yellow spot into the sun”. Pablo Picasso

“Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep”. Dilbert, comic strip

“The chief enemy of creativity is ‘good’ sense”. Pablo Picasso

His work is often categorised into periods. While the names of many of his later periods are debated, the most commonly accepted periods in his work are the Blue Period (1901–1904), the Rose Period (1904–1906), the African-influenced Period (1907–1909), Analytic Cubism (1909–1912), and Synthetic Cubism (1912–1919).

Exceptionally prolific throughout the course of his long life, Picasso achieved universal renown and immense fortune for his revolutionary artistic accomplishments, and became one of the best-known figures in 20th-century art.

Love

“Love is the greatest refreshment in life”. Pablo Picasso

“When we meet someone and fall in love, we have a sense that the whole universe is on our side. And yet if something goes wrong, there is nothing left! How is it possible for the beauty that was there only minutes before to vanish so quickly? Life moves very fast. It rushes from heaven to hell in a matter of seconds”. Paulo Coelho

“… What is hell? I maintain that it is the suffering of being unable to love”.
Dostoevsky, Fyodor M. (1999) [1880]. The Brothers Karamazov

If I can find the words in my mind
The words could explain but the words won’t come
If you can see what you mean to me
My words should explain but my words won’t come
And oh, how hard I try to tell you I love you
But something holds me back when I try to tell you

The Painter

“Who sees the human face correctly: the photographer, the mirror, or the painter?  Pablo Picasso

“My mother said to me, ‘If you are a soldier, you will become a general. If you are a monk, you will become the Pope.’ Instead, I was a painter, and became Picasso”. Pablo Picasso

“Paintings have a life of their own that derives from the painter’s soul”. Vincent Van Gogh

“To finish a work? To finish a picture? What nonsense! To finish it means to be through with it, to kill it, to rid it of its soul, to give it its final blow the coup de grace for the painter as well as for the picture”. Pablo Picasso
