Picasso in paris, 1900-1907

When Pablo Picasso arrived in Paris in 1900 a new world opened 
up for the nineteen-year-old painter. Developing his own style and 
getting inspiration in the work of artists such as Van Gogh, 
Gauguin, Toulouse-Lautrec and Steinlen.

"With pioneering works such as Melancholy woman (1901, Detroit 
Institute of Arts) from his melancholy Blue Period and the famous 
Self-portrait with a palette (1906, Philadelphia Museum of Art) from 
his Pink Period, he paved the way for Cubism, which would forever 
change the course of twentieth-century painting.

The exhibition in the Van Gogh Museum traces Picasso’s artistic 
development from his arrival in Paris until 1907, when he had grown 
into a leading figure of the French avant-garde."
