1: birth and death | Born in 1881 in Malaga, Spain and died in 1973 in Mougins, France

2: About Picasso | His father was a art teacher who quickly realized he had a boy genius on his hands. He taught his son everything he knew. At the age of 14 Picasso passed a exam that was made for college students.

3: By the early 1900s Picasso moved away to Paris 'the capital of arts'. He met many new friends there like Henri Matisse, Joan Miro, George Barque.

4: blue period | This was during 1901 and 1904. And why it is called the blue period is because most of his paintings were predominantly blue. This was considered to be a poetic expression. This depressing period was caused by the suicide of his close friend. also he was living away from home in poor conditions.

6: Rose Period | The rose period is not as famous as the blue period. The rose period started in 1904 and was not as depressing as the blue period. And the reason its called the rose period is because Picasso used more reds.
