Pablo Picasso: his early works
From a very early age the young Pablo Picasso displayed inclination towards painting. Already at the age of ten years he drew with an incredible realism attracting the attention. And at 13 he had his a first exhibition with caricatures and drawings that he auto edited by hand for the journals. Shortly after he studied at the School of Fine Arts in Barcelona where he excelled as a brilliant student.
His first great painting dates from 1895, it is in the Picasso Museum in Barcelona and is about First Communion. But this is only the first of a large number of creations of the genius from Malaga.
His artistic stages went through different colours beginning with the blue period, followed by his pink period in France. Later passed into the proto-cubism, and the cubism with all its versions and influences of Matisse, Rousseau, the Bolevar de Clichy, etc. He then entered a stage dedicated to circus, with the Russian ballets as protagonists of his works and the outstanding work Dames de Avignon.
After this stage came the Surrealism, the creation of Guernica and his pacifist era from which emerges the Dove of Peace, which he created in February 1949 for the World Congress for Peace to be held in Paris in April of the same year.
Picasso’s pigeon was known as “The dove of peace” and was the image on Congress poster.
