About the Artist, Pablo Picasso

Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), the influential 20th-century artist from Spain, revolutionized modern art through his visionary creativity and groundbreaking contributions. From his early prodigious talent to his co-founding of Cubism, Picasso's diverse body of work, including paintings, sculptures, and ceramics, continues to inspire artists worldwide.

Born on October 25, 1881, in Málaga, Spain, Picasso displayed remarkable artistic abilities from a young age. His artistic journey led him to experiment with various styles and techniques, leaving an indelible mark on the art world. Picasso's artistic career can be divided into distinct periods, each characterized by its own unique style and thematic focus. Notably, his Blue Period, marked by melancholic and somber tones, reflected his deep empathy for human suffering. Subsequently, the Rose Period brought a shift towards brighter colors and more optimistic subjects.

However, it was with the advent of Cubism that Picasso's revolutionary artistic vision reached its zenith. Alongside Georges Braque, he co-founded this groundbreaking movement, which shattered traditional notions of representation. Through fragmented forms and multiple perspectives, Picasso challenged the boundaries of art and delved into the abstract realm. This period marked a turning point in the history of art, solidifying Picasso's status as a visionary and innovator. His unparalleled creativity and tireless experimentation continue to inspire generations of artists, cementing his legacy as one of the most influential artists of the 20th century.

Care Instructions

Machine washable. Avoid mixing synthetic cloth with cottons, as polyester can form lint and cause pilling. Beware of detergents with optical brighteners, which can change the colors of the cloth. Use alkaline-free soaps or detergents without any additives. (In France, Moutet recommends Marseilles Soap).

The use of fabric softener should be avoided, especially for tea towels, because it reduces the cloth's absorbency. Instead, try using a "shot" of white vinegar in the fabric softener dispenser. It is good for the linen and environmentally friendly.

Do not tumble dry. Remove wet to avoid wrinkles and creases. Dry flat or iron with a medium setting.

Bear in mind that fabric will shrink 5 to 10% upon washing. Absorbency and softness will increase with every washing.
