Describe Pablo Picassos legacy in the history of twentieth-century art is unparalleled.

Pablo Picassos legacy in the history of twentieth-century art is unparalleled. According to Gombrich, what does Picasso hope to achieve through Cubism (Gombrich p. 574)? As Gombrich explains, despite his originality, Picasso also owes much to the Impressionists and Realists (Monet, Manet, Courbet) as well as the post-Impressionists (Seurat, Van Gogh, Cezanne). Describe what earlier influences from the nineteenth century are reflected in Picassos work. How can these comparisons can help us understand Picasso as part of an evolution towards redefining the image in the Modern period as art transitions from focusing on subject matter to form (Gombrich 577-8).
