Pablo Picasso produced some of the most famous art of the twentieth century and he continues to fascinate us long after his death. That art, though, is astoundingly varied, confusing and frustrating, and the man has been vilified as much as he has been praised. To better understand the artist and his work, we will focus on ten pieces that span his long career, placing them in the context of Picasso's life and the aesthetic, social and political concerns of the day. In addition to some of his better-known paintings (such as Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, Guernica and his portrait of Gertrude Stein), we will investigate lesser-known works (including collages and sculptures), interrogating each to develop a richer understanding of the impact of Picasso.
