Today in History

June 24th, 1901 marked the beginning of Pablo Picasso’s first Paris exhibition, at the age of 19. Later that year, he entered his famous “Blue Period”. The two paintings featured here are from 1901. Some of the distinctive elements of Picasso’s style are already apparent, but the style is also quite different from what we see in many of his later works. It’s fascinating to trace the development of such a genius and prolific creator.
