I found this artwork on an antique market
in Montpellier/France in 1997

From this day I had it within a wooden frame with glass

to guard it from dust and dirt


-Frame is not part of this auction-

I had it on a wall in a dark corner beneath stairway,

so sun could not bleach this wonderful piece of art.

Painting will come without frame.

Pablo Ruiz y Picasso (1881-1973)

Picasso was born in Malaga, Spain, on the 25th day of October, 1881. his father Jose Ruiz was a painter and art teacher. Maria Picasso Ruiz was the artist’s mother. He was fourteen when the family moved to Barcelona. The painter and sculptor, was the most influential artist of the 20th century. He was a founder of the abstract movement and, with his friend Georges Braque, originated cubism. During Picasso’s early years in Paris, he painted with mostly blue and rose tones as he studied line, shape, and value. This prolific artist for all of his 91 years, Picasso continually explored daring and Unpredictable new directions in art. He did brilliant work in sculpture and every form of graphic arts, as well as ceramics, mosaics, and stage design. His works appear in museums and private collections all over the world.

Unlike many great artists before him who died poor and unknown, Pablo Picasso became rich and famous long before his death in 1973. During his career he created over 20,000 works.
Even as a child in Spain, Picasso rejected the formal "rules" of art. He mastered realistic painting at a very early age. Then he began to experiment with other ways of seeing the world and expressing what he saw. The first painting he did in cubism is called "the ladies of Avignon".
Picasso continually invented and used new styles, and also he used all different types of materials. He even worked with junk. One of his well-known sculptures was made from two parts of an old bicycle. It is called bull’s head.
Picasso’s career lasted more than 70 years! No artist has affected modern art more. The thousands of masterpieces he created changed the way people thought about art. Picasso was perhaps the most talented, and successful artist who ever lived. Pablo Ruiz, Picasso was born in 1881 in a small town on the southern coast of Spain. His father was a painter who taught art. Picasso showed exceptional talent at an early age and by the time he was in his teens, painted better than his father r any of the local art teachers.
At 16, Picasso was sent to the Royal Academy of Madrid, where students drew from plaster casts and copied works of the old masters. Picasso’s father soon became angry with his son’s rebellious behavior, long hair, and strange clothes. He believed that Pablo was wasting his talent and scolded him: "why don’t you cut your hair and paint sensibly?" In 1900, Picasso left for Paris—then the center of the art world. He lived in a cold, rundown building painting constantly, sometimes surviving for days on only a piece of bread.
During these years, his art reflected his dismal surroundings. Homeless outcasts were the subjects of many of his fairly realistic early paintings. After seeing African masks and sculptures, his works became more simplified and angular leading up to the revolutionary new style known as Cubism. Picasso didn’t sell much of his work during these early years. But he worked continuously, always experimenting with different styles of painting. Though Picasso lived to be 92 and became the most famous artist in the world, he spoke of his youthful days in Paris as "the happiest time in my life."
