Step6. Exercise
. 阅读填空训练: 请认真阅读下面短文,并根据所读内容在文章后图表中的空格里填入最恰当的单词。 注意:每空不超过 1 个单词。 Painting a picture of Picasso Pablo Picasso was born in Spain, in 1881. His father, who was also an artist, encouraged him to start drawing at a very young age. He soon noticed that his son was a far more talented painter than he was. In 1895, Picasso and his family moved to Barcelona, where he attended the school of Fine Arts. After graduating, he continued his studies in Madrid, but instead of going to class, he spent his days at the Prado Museum, copying the style of famous old painters. When he later returned to Barcelona, he started to visit The Four Cats, a cafe which was popular with artists. Picasso would spend hours debating art with poets and other artists. These lively meetings at the cafe led to two important events in Picasso’s life: firstly, he met a poet called Sabartes and a painter called Casagemas, who became his closest friends; secondly, he decided to devote his life to experimenting with different styles of art instead of producing traditional art. In October 1900, Picasso left Barcelona for Paris, and his life as a wandering artist really began. The Blue and Rose Periods are two important periods in Picasso’s work. The Blue Period, which lasted from 1901 to 1904, was heavily influenced by the death of his friend, Casagemas. He

used blue paint to express his sadness at his friend’s death. During the Rose Period, from 1904 to 1906, Picasso was interested in painting circus dancers. He used pink and rose colors to convey the beauty of these circus figures. However, Picasso is most famous for his contributions to cubism, which is a style of art that uses broken lines and cube-like shapes in unusual positions to represent people and objects. Picasso was both an artist and a celebrity because the media took such an interest in this gifted and unusual man. He died in 1973, in France, and left behind an enormous number of works which are shown in both museums and private collections across the world.
