Pablo Picasso was born on October 25, 1881 in Malaga, Spain. He was the first child of Don Jose Ruiz y Blasco, an art teacher, and Maria Picasso y Lopez. At an early age Pablo showed an interest in drawing. His first words were “piz, piz”, which is short for “lapiz”, the Spanish word for pencil. At the age of 7 Pablo began receiving art instruction from his father.

The precision of Pablo’s painting technique grew, until it soon surpassed that of his father.
