Today In History; First Exhibition By Pablo Picasso

1901: The gallery of Ambroise Vollard is where Pablo Picasso's first exhibition took place in 1901. The exhibition was comprised of paintings and drawings in a variety of styles and brought Picasso financial success. Picasso is considered one of the greatest geniuses in art history. Together with Geroges Braque, Picasso founded Cubism. Cubism is a form of art whereby the artists break up the subjects into several different pieces, enabling the audience to view the various aspects of the faces of the subject simultaneously. Although Picasso was primarily a painter, he also did sculptures, collages and even produced some poetry.
