Vincent Willem Van Gogh was born into a middle-class family and began to draw as a child, characterized as someone serious, quiet and thoughtful. He worked as an art salesman when he was young and traveled frequently, but went into depression after being transferred to London. He returned to the religion and spent time in Belgium as a Protestant missionary. He faced health problems and loneliness until he started painting in 1881, moving to live with his parents. His early works portrayed still lifes and representation of peasants. Vincent Van Gogh moved to Paris in 1886 and met with Emile Bernard and Paul Ganguin, who were expressing themselves against Impressionist sensibility. He created a new approach to still-life and landscapes by producing his works with his paintings getting more vivid colors as he developed a style that settled down completely in 1888. Van Gogh created more than two thousand works in about a decade, producing around 860 oil paintings. His works related landscapes, still lifes, portraits and self-portrait, in vibrant and dramatic colors, with strong and expressive brushstrokes.

The Spanish artist Pablo Picasso, stood out in several areas of the plastic arts: painting, sculpture, graphic arts and ceramics. Picasso is considered one of the most important plastic artists of the twentieth century. Picasso’s childhood drawings represented scenes of bullfighting. His first work, preserved, was an oil on wood, painted at eight, is called The Bullfighter. Picasso kept this work all his life, taking him with him whenever he moved from home. Years later she painted another similar painting, The Death of the Outspoken and Futile Woman. Picasso is angry and rebellious. This picture is clearly an insulting expression of his relationship with the woman. His father’s main concern with little Pablo was his academic achievement, but he did not spare the opportunity to foster his son’s talent. Drawing was, from an early age, the most appropriate form of Picasso to express himself.
