Happy Birthday, Picasso

Happy Birthday, Picasso

Spanish artist Pablo Ruiz y Picasso was born on October 25, 1881. Actually, he was baptized “Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Crispiniano de la Santísima Trinidad Ruiz y Picasso” but that wouldn’t fit neatly in the corner of a canvas.
