Pablo started displaying an ability to paint since he was three. A small oil painting, Picador, - a picture painted by the boy at the age of eight - is considered one of his first works. It was inspired by his first attendance of the bullfight his father took him to. Corrida remained one of Picasso’s passions for his entire life.

yeah I mean this is cool and all but when I was 8 years old I was rounding up all the neighborhood stray cats and I used to make them fight for food. I was helping those cats more than this painting helps me so if you think about it, this painting really is not that impressive from a grand perspective 06 December

Do people think they are original with the 8 years old comments? That is such an old joke, and so stupid. Perhaps your mind is that of an 8 year old if you can't see the beauty and genius of Picasso. Please go back to watching TV. This art is not for you. 11 May

I don't understand those who say they "don't understand the hype". Surely this is a page about Picasso, so if you don't like him, don't come here??... I'll be honest, five years ago I didn't really enjoy Picasso as much as I do now. He is not everyone's cup of tea, especially his avant garde work, but when you look at his hole body of work, I can't help but be impressed. He had such a wide range of styles and was quite successful in most of them. Granted he was an arrogant man and I'm not a fan of his personality, but I don't think he'd much care what we think. I just hope if there's an afterlife, Henri Rosseau is having his own back. :-) 01 May
personally i don't understand the hype. sure, it's good for an 8 year old, but tbh it's not that interesting to me. 13 January
Quarantine boredom has took me here staring at Picasso painting when he was 8. What a gifted person had ever lived! 11 September

28 June Nikolai from Switzerland wrote: 'The painting is certainly impressive, to say the least. But what has always struck me as curious is that none of Picasso's other works from this period are anywhere near as accomplished as this painting. It is a well known fact that at one time it was a common practice in teaching painting, for the master to repaint areas of the student's work. In the case of this painting, I cannot help but wonder how much of it might have actually been painted by Picasso's father.'
