What was Picasso from A Coruña like?
In 1891, aged 9, Picasso moved with his family to A Coruña, where his father was a professor at the School of Fine Arts. It was at this very school that Picasso honed his extraordinary skill as a draftsman. It was also in A Coruña where he started as a painter and had his first exhibition. On a personal level, he lived his first love and faced the death of his little sister, an event that marked his life forever.
