Live The Life: Pablo Picasso

5.9.2012

By Out.com Editors

Picasso is the most celebrated figure of modern art. His 20th-century masterpieces -- often revolutionary and controversial -- included the beautiful-scary, hyper-sexualized Les Demoiselles d’Avignon and Guernica, which graphically articulated the horrors of war. The Spanish artist’s coterie of mistresses and penchant for May-December romances proved the provocative nature of his work also extended to his private life. Despite this, his personal style retained a laissez-faire sensibility cultivated from his self-imposed exile to France. There, he adopted the uniform of a Breton shirt, loose shorts, and espadrilles—the perfect paint-splattered antithesis to art world pretension.
