Pablo Picasso grew up in Spain where he was born in 1881
He began to experiment and created a completely
new style of painting called Cubism. Cubism is a style of art which
shows all of the possible viewpoints of a person or an object all at once.
Still Life with Flowers and Lemons, 1941, oil on canvas, 92 x 73cm
His father was a painter and Pablo learned to draw from an early age. He attended art school but grew restless as he wanted to create something new.
It is called
Cubism because the items represented in the artworks look like they are made out of cubes and other geometrical shapes.
