PABLO PICASSO. 1 st junior A
PABLO PICASSO. My name is Pablo Picasso. I was born in the Spanish town of Málaga in 1881. Ever since I was a boy, I liked to paint. My father was a painter and Art Teacher.
PABLO PICASSO. • My first drawings were of bulls and doves. • I did them when I was just 9 years old. A child with a dove.
PABLO PICASSO. My father passed on to me his love of doves and bulls.
PABLO PICASSO. • I studied arts at La Coruña, Barcelona and Madrid. • But academic studies never excited me. . . • My dream was to visit Paris.
PARIS IN BLUE AND PINK. • I arrived in Paris in 1900. • There I set about discovering the artistic movements of the period. • There was so much to learn!!!! • Suddenly, my best friend Carlos died. • I was very sad and I started to paint everything in BLUE.
PARIS IN BLUE AND PINK. • Soon afterwards I fell in LOVE. • I began to paint everything using PINK. • At that time I spent a lot of time at the circus.
A NEW WAY OF SEEING. • Why paint things to look so real? • Could be there another way to represent objects and figures? • Then he experimented with new materials, made collages, sculptures, ceramics, . . . • And he found a new language: CUBISM.
WAR AND ART. • • In 1935 the Spanish Civil War started. A new change took place in my life. I was shocked by a sad news: The Basque city of GUERNICA was cruelly bombed and destroyed in April of 1937, during the Spanish Civil War. • I painted a mural as big as a wall, in one month.
I painted all in BLACK AND I painted: WHITE. No colours to show the suffering of the WAR. • THE GUERNICA.
With this electric light Picasso said that this is not a natural dissaster, this is a MAN MADE DISSASTER. THIS IS A WAR.
What can you see? A woman crying with her dead baby. A bull watching the dissaster. A man burning!. A soldier dead in pieces on the ground.
GOODBYE! This is • I lived an apassionate life. my • I never came back to Spain. portrait. • I died in Mougins, France, on the 8 th of April of 1973. • I was 92 years old. Do you like painting?
