Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) is widely regarded as one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century. He is known for co-founding the Cubist movement, the invention of assemblage, the co-invention of collage, and for the wide variety of styles that he helped develop and explore.
Picasso was exceptionally prolific throughout his lifetime. The total number of artworks he produced has been estimated at 50,000. Of those thousands of paintings were a number of self-portraits through the years that often reflected the various periods of his artistic career.
