.. ado Museum, and to paint a mural for the Spanish Pavilion at the Paris World’s Fair. He accepted the offer and the work he completed were called Guernica. (Dunkun, 169) During this time the Nazi party began to take over. The Germans harassed Picasso by taking his paintings and damaging some of them pretty badly.

The Nazi party prohibited the work of Picasso to be exhibited anywhere. Things didn’t get any better for Picasso for a while, and he had to see a number of friends incarcerated. (Galwitz, 153) Paris was finally free from the harassment when it was liberated from the Germans. About a month after this happened, Picasso joined the Communist party.

She was 40 years younger than he was, but they ended up moving in together. They had a son in 1947, and moved to France in 1948. This is where Picasso decided to bring back the love for ceramics had fallen apart during World War I. Picasso and Francoise had another child in 1949, and this time it was a girl, which pleased Picasso. In 1950, Picasso won the Lenon Peace Prize.

In 1952, he planned to decorate a 14th century chapel in Vallauris. Picasso was a very busy man, and had little time for anything else but his work. The relationship between him and Francoise was empty, so her and the children decided to move back to Paris. (Jaffe, 120) Not long after his separation, he met a model named Sylvette David and within a month, he completed around forty drawings and oils of her. This infatuation lasted until he met another woman he was interested in named Jacqueline Roque. She moved in with him, and they were married in 1961. By this time, Picasso was 80 years old, but by no means was he slowing down. (Jaffe, 124) Picasso’s work continued to be displayed and admired in the most elite galleries around the world.

In 1965, at the age of 83, his busy life was finally catching up with him, and his health was starting to fail. He had to have gallbladder and prostate surgery, and in 1972, Picasso was admitted into a hospital due to severe pulmonary congestion. Despite his illness, he happened to have enough energy to make another painting, and write a letter to the woman he claimed to have been the only love of his life, Marie-Therese Walter. (Jaffe, 136) It was April 8, 1973 when Picasso took his final breath. He could no longer fight for his life.

He left many great achievements with the world, which included 1,885 paintings; 1,228 sculptures; 2,880 ceramics; 18,095 engravings; 6,112 lithographs; and around 12,000 drawings. It is commonly thought that if a historian of the future [was shown] Picasso’s work in the absence of any documentation, [he] could never believe that all [of it] was created by one man, one mind(Jaffe, 44). Pablo Picasso was a genius when it came to art. He was a creator of forms, languages, myths, and beauty. He was committed to life, both the positive and negative things about it.

His expressions were shown through his work and shown to the world. His art flourished in the past and hasn’t stopped yet. He may be buried, but he will never die in the public’s eye!
