Pablo Picasso is one of the most important artists of modern art and he is considered to be one of the most famous artists of the twentieth century. No painter or sculptor had been as famous in his own lifetime. Picasso's work is also extremely varied. He worked through many different mediums. Over his career he has completed prints, sculptures, paintings and ceramics. Most of Picasso's work fits into three different categories. They are his Blue Period, Rose Period, and of course the Cubism movement. The Blue Period spanned between 1901 and 1904.

The work during this period was done in various shades of blue to depict his sorrowful feelings towards the loss of a close friend. His subject matter included beggars, prostitutes and convicts. Picasso was successful in conveying the suffering he was obsessed with at the time. The Rose Period began during 1904 when he was living in Paris. Picasso prints took on a warmer more optimistic mood as he had moved past his depression and found love.
