"Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life." - Pablo Picasso
One of the most prominent and innovative artists of the 20th century, Pablo Picasso was born on this day in 1881 in Málaga, Spain.
Held in the highest regard during his lifetime, he is celebrated for his lengthy and prolific career working in several modernist idioms, as well as for co-founding Cubism. In 1973, Picasso died in Mougins, at 92 years old, and is renowned today as one of the pioneering and most influential forces of 20th-century modernism.
The Museum of Latin American Art will celebrate the father of Mexican printmaking during its Dia de Los Muertos celebration this year.
