This is the sixth of our Revisiting Reports – a series of 2-page auction trend analysis on individual artists. In this edition of the series we look at Pablo Picasso inspired by Sotheby’s recent Las Vegas sale, Picasso: Masterworks from the MGM Resorts Fine Art Collection.


Pablo Picasso (1881 – 1973) was a Spanish painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist and designer who spent most of his adult life in France. Regarded as one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, he is known for co- founding the Cubist movement, inventing constructed sculpture, and co-inventing collage – among many other revolutionary achievements. Arguably his most famed works are Les Demoiselles d’Avignon (1907) now part of the MoMa’s permanent collection, and Guernica (1937), part of the permanent collection of the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid, Spain.
