Pablo Ruiz y Picasso (1881-1973), known as Pablo Picasso was a Spanish painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist, and stage designer who spent most of his adult life in France.  Picasso spent the War years in Paris under the Nazi occupation.  The Nazi’s would come to his studio and hassle him once in a while, but pretty much left him alone.

“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” – Pablo Picasso
