Pablo Picassa who was a world-famous Spanish painter made a great artistic output throughout his life which made him one of the most possessed artists of all time. Some of his portraits like Marie-Thérèse Walter, Dora Maar, Françoise Gilot, and Jacqueline Roque have become the most recognized in the history of art. His works were auctioned in many grand meetings and purchased by dealers at the highest prices from all over the world. The early-career Rose and Blue period are the portraits by Pablo Picassa which are modernist's most prized paintings.
After the death of Pablo Picassa, his arts raised the highest ranks as his works are now going for more than $100 million in various public auctions and even at higher prices in private business dealings. At present Pablo remains as the top-grossing artist at auction worldwide, raking in $245 million across 3,400 lots in 2020 alone. The artist world had suffered a great loss by the year 2020 but after the global pandemic COVID 19, the world of art business has again returned with high speed. Picasso was not just a painter but also a theatre designer, sculptor and printmaker who had spent his life in France when he was an adult.
