And in a twinkle in his eye,

Picasso discovers his destiny!

 

It’s the birthday of the artist Pablo Picasso,

born in Malaga, Spain (1881),

who was living in a bohemian community in Barcelona painting portraits of his friends and acquaintances

when one of his paintings was selected for inclusion in the upcoming world’s fair in Paris.

He was just 18.

He went off to Paris for the exhibition

, saw paintings by Manet, Cézanne, Degas, and Toulouse-Lautrec,

and came home determined to be an artist.
