I love this building and Picasso too. To get this shot I did a lot of walking, fixed focal make your legs work as the zoom. I like getting the exercise. Great exhibit going now at the museum. Here’s a link to the Picasso and the Avant-Garde in Paris exhibit.
Picasso was a Spanish painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist and theatre designer who spent most of his adult life in France1. He was one of the most influential artists of the 20th century and the co-founder of Cubism with Georges Braque12. He also experimented with different styles, techniques, and ideas throughout his long and prolific career. Some of his most famous works include Les Demoiselles d’Avignon (1907), Guernica (1937), and The Weeping Woman (1937)1. He was also a lover of many women, some of whom inspired his art2.
