Pablo Picasso was born in Malaga, Spain, in 1881. He was a child prodigy and showed an early aptitude for art. His father, José Ruiz Blasco, was a painter and art teacher, and he encouraged his son's artistic development. Picasso moved to Barcelona in 1895 to study at the School of Fine Arts. He quickly became disillusioned with the traditional teaching methods, and he left the school after a year. He then moved to Paris, where he met other avant-garde artists, such as Georges Braque and Henri Matisse.
