Pablo Picasso is famously known for his Blue Period in art. What does that mean and why? I’ll discuss some of the theories behind these works by the Spaniard.

The Romantic Movement in the 19th century was contrary to the Rococo style of the previous century and became a revival of many styles in art, literature and music.
