Worth a Thousand Words: First Communion - Pablo Picasso

Pablo Picasso. First Communion. 1895-96.

Of course, the big surprise in this painting is not the subject matter, though I really love the piece. It is the artist. This is from Pablo Picasso's early years. My Daily Art Display has more information about Picasso during that time.


  1. I would have never guessed that was a Picasso.

  2. This is my favorite Picasso--and I was surprised when I first learned it was one of his earlier pieces. I love it!

  3. That's the thing about Picasso that separates him from his imitators: he could draw. So when he says that this image of a thousand little squares is a portrait of so-and-so, I'm more inclined to believe him.
