Pablo Ruiz Picasso was a Spanish painter and one of the most recognized figures in 20th century art. He is best known as the co-founder, along with Georges Braque, of the movement Cubism. He worked primarily in oil, but exhibited equal facility with watercolor, pastels, charcoal, pencil, and ink and in creating objets d’art. Picasso is famous for his various periods of work, which includes—but is not limited to—his Blue, Rose, African-Influenced, Analytic Cubist, and Synthetic Cubist periods. His work can be found in almost every major museum collection worldwide as well as numerous regional and university collections
