Picasso and the Pipe

Pablo Ruiz y Picasso, also known as Pablo Picasso (25 October 1881 – 8 April 1973), 

Picasso in 1909

was a Spanish painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist, stage designer, poet and playwright who spent most of his adult life in France.

In addition to being a pipe smoker, he regularly found inspiration in the subject of pipe smoking as reflected by the following selection of paintings from a prodigiously creative body of work that spans the first three quarters of the twentieth century.
