Picasso in Paris

Picasso settled in Paris in 1905. With George Braque, he then pioneered cubism and turned Montmartre, a hilly Paris district, into the fabric of modern art.

In 1913, he moved to Montparnasse, which became the new place to be of modern art, with artists such as Modigliani, Juan Gris, Diego Rivera, Fujita and Soutine.

Pablo Picasso spent most of his life in Paris and on the French Riviera in South of France, where he died in 1973.
