This design celebrates Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), whose disregard for convention culminated in the influential avant-garde of Cubism.
In his early years, succumbing to the romantic allure of Paris, Picasso mixed with an assortment of eccentric characters as he slept in the day and painted by night. He was even known to burn his portraits of beggars and prostitutes to provide warmth in his impoverished Parisian flat.
Picasso’s style changed as he experimented with revolutionary influences. In 1907, inspired by the power and simplicity of African art, he painted his Cubism masterpiece, the Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, which changed the face of art for the rest of the century.
