Pablo Picasso is one of the most famous artists in history. As a painter, ceramist, sculptor and stage designer, he had a huge influence on the entire 20th century art world. Picasso started drawing as a child before turning his talents to painting. He moved to Paris in 1902, where he befriended artists like Max Jacob and Guillaume Apollinaire. Together with Georges Braque, he is regarded as the founder of cubism. Picasso’s Les Demoiselles d’Avignon (1907) is the first famous example of their experimentation with form; the painting is also famous for introducing African art into Western painting. Through his collages, Picasso also became the first artist to include everyday objects, like papers or bits of string, into artworks; later he created sculptures with found objects. In 1937, his painting Guernica became a worldwide symbol for the cruelties perpetrated during the Spanish Civil War.
