In 1906, American writer and art collector Gertrude Stein arranged for famed artists Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso to meet. Little did she know that this fateful meeting would change the entire course of Modern art history.
From c. 1907-1917, Pablo Picasso pioneered the Cubism movement, a revolutionary style of modern art that Picasso formed in response to the rapidly changing modern world. In collaboration with his friend and fellow artist Georges Braque, Picasso challenged conventional, realistic forms of art through the establishment of Cubism.
Hailed as a defining moment in Pablo Picasso’s artistic career, The Blue Period (1901-1904) was inspired by Picasso’s own emotional turmoil and financial destitution.
