WHO IS PABLO PICASSO?
Pablo Picasso was a painter, sculptor, printmaker, and ceramicist born in 1881 in Malaga, Spain. He spent most of his adult life working as an artist in France and died in 1973.
Picasso is one of the most important artists in modern art. During his career, he created more than 20,000 paintings, drawings, sculptures, and ceramics. He is famous for the variety of styles that he helped develop, such as cubism and collage.
The Bouquet of Peace was created by Picasso for a peace demonstration held in Stockholm, July 16-22, 1958. It was a lithograph, printed on heavy woven paper. The image is meant to show two different people’s hands coming together with hope, peace, and kindness.
