Picasso was a Spanish painter, sculptor, graphic artist, ceramicist and set designer who spent most of his adult life in France. Pablo Picasso La Ronde de la Jeunesse (The Youth Circle), 1961, exudes joy and harmony. Brightly colored figures in brilliant orange, yellow and brown join hands and dance jubilantly around a light blue dove in the center carrying an olive branch. The dove, a well-known symbol of peace, is the reason for the celebratory gathering of so many figures. See more
This lithograph was used on a postcard for the Eighth World Festival of Youth and Students for Peace and Friendship in Helsinki, Finland. Looking at the unity of the figures, it is no wonder that this image was chosen for the event. People are dancing around the dove, throwing their hands in the air and jumping around. These Picasso stick figures are depicted with incredible movement, and the viewer feels the rush of emotion that carries them through their dance of youth.
About Pablo Ruiz Picasso
Born on 25 October 1881 in Malaga (Andalusia), Pablo Ruiz began drawing at a very young age with his father, a drawing teacher. In 1895, he studied at the School of Fine Arts in Barcelona, La Lonja, before continuing at the Royal Academy San Fernando in Madrid. Returning to Barcelona from 1899, he worked in particular as an illustrator for magazines and newspapers and regularly attended the Cabaret els quatre gats. See more
In 1901, he adopted his mother's name as his signature: "Picasso". He will now sign his works in this way.
From 1904, he settled permanently in France after three stays in previous years. He first moved in with his first wife Fernande Olivier to the famous Montmartre workshop, the Bateau-Lavoir. He met in the capital among many others.
Picasso appears as the main representative of cubism with Georges Braque. This movement raises a controversy by developing a new way of painting, by breaking down forms and multiplying the points of view that appear simultaneously on the same work. Indeed, if artists like Albert Gleizes and Jean Metzinger developed a real theory of cubism, Picasso and Braque remained attached to technical novelty rather than theory... Following Cézanne's precubism, the years 1908 to 1912 corresponded to the "Analytical Cubism" of which Picasso would say "it was simply an art that was concerned with form". It seeks to break the traditional perspective.
Feeling the inexorable passage of time in his last years, he creates with an inextinguishable passion and fervour a powerful erotic series about couples. For Pablo Picasso, "It is in the work of a lifetime that the real seduction lies".
