Picasso died exactly 50 years ago on the Côte d’Azur, leaving behind an incredible legacy of works and a stylistic revolution that rewrote the history of art. One of the most prolific artists, active in the fields of painting, sculpture, graphics and ceramics, and a versatile personality, Picasso proved that artistic expression is anything but ‘static’, it is a personal and ever-evolving language. From his academic beginnings to the blue and pink period, up to the rise of Cubism, each season of Picasso’s life offers insights into the artist and his works with a variety of interpretations and examples.
