Pablo Picasso is the most famous artist of the twentieth century. During his long career, he produced thousands of works, including paintings, drawings, sculptures, prints, and ceramics. By inventing new ways of depicting reality, he inspired many artistic styles and changed the way we think about Western art. Even during Picasso’s lifetime, entire museums were dedicated to his work. Picasso is considered the father of modern artistic thought, and his works are regarded as landmarks of modern art.
