#Picasso began his #career with more #traditional #styles; he once stated, “…at 15 I painted like #Velazquez, and it took me 80 years to paint like a #child.” “The First #Communion” was Picasso’s entry into the #official #artistic world. He presented it at the Third #Exhibition of Fine Arts and #Artistic Industries in 1896. At first, he copied the #oldmasters, trying to imitate their style; later they would be the source of ideas for #original paintings of his own, and he would re-arrange them again and again in different variations.
