Perhaps the greatest and most influential artist of the 20th century is Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), who created in many mediums: painting, sculpting, printmaking, ceramics, stage design, poetry, and writing. Born in Spain, Picasso lived most of his adult life in France. He was a pioneering and revolutionary artist, who was the co-founder of Cubism, the inventor of constructed sculpture, and the co-inventor of collage. Remarkably talented and prolific throughout his life, Picasso remains one of the most famous and beloved figures of 20th century art. Among his many iconic works are Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, The Old Guitarist, and Guernica.
