Pablo Picasso

Pablo Picasso was a very famous modern artist who changed the way people thought about art.  He was born in 1881.  He painted thousands of pictures during his life in different styles.  He started painting when he was very young and continued till he was over 90 years old.  He died in 1973.

He painted The Three Musicians a hundred years ago this year but it is still a very modern picture.
