By the time Picasso reaches the age of 16 he had pretty much mastered classical art it its purity and went on to find his own style. Picasso moved to Paris with is best friend and fellow artist Carlos Casagemas.

...such a strong bond with Picasso when he died she fell into a depression and four years following she commuted suicide because she could not image being apart from him any longer.
By the time of his death Picasso had left behind about 50,000, artworks comprised of paintings, sculptures, ceramics, drawings, thousands of prints, and rugs.

Picasso did more then just art, he changed the world with something he loved to do. He may have been a womanizer, he may have been egocentric who on occasion may have done drugs to help his creative proses but he was also a visionary and his art will remind us of that tell the end of time.

René de Costa attributes the lack of his artistic development to Juan Gris’ own efforts (674).

I believe that the lack of the pop of color in this painting was a good and wise decision because those colors naturally scream out fun and playful while the tone down neutral colors have a more serious tone to it.
