Spanish-born Pablo Picasso is one of the most versatile, influential artists of the modern era, helping to pioneer many of the artistic techniques practiced throughout the art world during the 20th century. Picasso enjoyed an exceptionally long and fruitful career and produced an estimated 50,000 artworks throughout his life spanning all media. Experimenting with different styles and techniques, he is regarded as a founding father of Cubism, an art style inspired by the geometric shapes that come together to create larger forms and figures. He employed these techniques in sculptures, paintings, drawings, and ceramics, and many other artists drew inspiration from this movement. His work is among the most expensive in the world, and a number of his pieces hold records across several auction houses for fetching the highest sale prices in different categories.
