Pablo Picasso requires no introduction. Arguably the most famous painter in existence, his level of genius comparable to those of Salvador Dali or Jackson Pollock, the Spaniard created some fifty thousand artworks during his life.
“It took me four years to paint like Rafael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.”
Not bad for an eight year old, right?
But his skill improved fast.
As a teenager, it was clear he was on his way to becoming a fantastic painter. He was so good, in fact, that his father, a painter himself, quit after noticing the sheer talent of his son.
