On this date in 1901, more than 75 different paintings went up on display at a gallery in Paris by a young 19 year old man named Pablo Picasso. The gallery was on the famous Paris’ rue Lafiftte, a street very well known for its many different art galleries. At the time, he was an unknown artist outside of his home town of Barcelona, so to have the opportunity to display his work in Paris was a major deal.
