It was on this day...
1901 Pablo Picaso's First Major Exhibition

Picaso was to become one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, but in 1901 he was a virtually unknown 19 year old from Barcelona, Spain.

His first major exhibition took place on this day at a gallery in the rue Lafitte, in Paris, France.

By this time he had already painted about 100 works, by the end of his career that figure would rise to over 50,000 works of art which also included drawings, engravings, sculptures, and ceramics.
