“Everything you can imagine is real.” Pablo Picasso
The Blue Period is a term used to define the works produced by Spanish painter Pablo Picasso between 1901 and 1904 when he painted essentially in shades of blue and blue-green, only occasionally warmed by other colors.
These somber works, inspired by the death of one of Picasso’s best friends and his time spent alone in Paris at only nineteen years of age, are now some of his most popular works, although he had difficulty selling them at the time.
Picasso made art until he died in 1973. He was 91 years old.
