A great artist is born this day in Malaga, Spain, 1881. This interesting man was one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. Sometimes he would change his style and people would get mad at him, plus his best friend passed away.He began to be sad,and he showed it in his paintings.He began to use colors like blue to show sadness, but then he met a girl named Fernande. Thus the rose period! Picasso and Fernande fell in love, and happier colors started showing. Not only were his colors happier he drew happier things like kids playing. In 1937, something happened that made him paint his most serious painting titled GUERNICA. Guernica was a city in Spain that was destroyed by bombs. Picasso lived to be ninety-two years old.
