Pablo Picasso, one of the most famous artists in the history of art, was greatly concerned with social justice and the condition of man, becoming a self-avowed communist early on. This paper shows that Picasso continued to produce works of art throughout his lifetime, frequently returning to basic themes to which he continually brought new insights and methods of conveyance. The paper shows that by the time of his death at age 92, Picasso had left an indelible mark on the world of art, ensuring his place in history.

From the Paper:

"During his lifetime, Picasso went through a number of developmental stages including his aptly named blue, rose and Negro periods. Picasso borrowed artistic elements and gained artistic influence from varying persons and cultures, bringing them all together to create something that was uniquely his own. With Georges Braque, Picasso is credited with founding the cubist movement, in addition to being the originator of collage artwork. Picasso worked in a wide array of artistic mediums, with a seemingly boundless range and reach. While many of the themes Picasso addressed in his artwork were similar to those seen in classical painting (portraits, still lifes, landscapes, literary themes, old masters, love and death, joy and suffering, etc.) he is credited with having paved the way for art to move toward the more abstract, subliminal and subconscious. Picasso broke down convention, creating something new and revolutionary to take its place."
