Pablo Picasso (1881 – 1973) is regarded as one of the most important and influential artists of the 20th century.
His long and prolific career saw him work across several mediums including painting, printmaking, collage, sculpture and ceramics.
Today Picasso's paintings regularly sell for tens of millions of dollars, and his most important works are on display in the world's greatest art museums.
Amongst his most famous works are the landmark 'Les Demoiselles d'Avignon' (1907), which heralded the birth of Cubism; the mural-sized Guernica (1937), a powerful work created in response to the aerial bombing of a town during the Spanish Civil War; and Women of Algiers, which sold in 2015 for $179.3 million, setting a world record for a painting at auction.
