About Pablo Picasso Pablo Picasso was born more than 120 years ago (1881) in Malaga, Spain. He is famous for being the co-founder of Cubism which is a style of painting where objects of the painting subject are broken up and re-painted in an abstract form. When Pablo was age 7 his father (who was also a painter) gave him artistic training in figure drawing and oil painting. Later on Pablo studied art in Madrid and then went to Paris when he was about 19. In 1900 Paris was considered the art capital of Europe. Picasso's work is divided into periods - The Blue Period (1901-1904), which were sad looking paintings using blue and blue-green colours. The Rose Period (1905-1907), which was a more happy style with orange and pink colours. The African-influenced Period (1908-1909) and The Cubism Period (1909- 1919)
