Pablo Picasso (1881–1973) Picasso was one of the most innovative and versatile artists of the twentieth century. He is most famous for creating Cubism with George Braque. Throughout his career he possessed a prolific creativity, producing an enormous volume of influential paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture, and ceramics. Karsh said he felt a particular affinity with artists because they understand the creative process. During Picasso’s sitting, Karsh noticed that Picasso saw himself reflected in the camera’s lens and instinctively moved slightly to improve the composition. In his books Karsh published three different pictures of Picasso from this 30-minute photo session.
