After the Blue Period came the Pink Period.
When Picasso began
his first real romantic relationship (with a neighbor) and grew
happier. It"s first picture is considered to be:
"The Young Girl with a Basket of Flowers",
bought by Gertrude Stein.
Paris papers called another Pink Period work, "Family of
Saltimbanques", grotesque and infamous,
but the spectacular price paid for the
painting of "Six circus performers" changed Picasso's life.
