Pablo Picasso was a world-renowned Spanish artist who lived from 1881 to 1973. According to a court appointed auditor who has charged with evaluating every asset in the late artist's estate, at the time of his death Pablo Picasso's net worth was between $100 and $250 million.
That's equal to $530 million to $1.3 billion today, after adjusting for inflation. The vast majority of this value came from Pablo's personal collection of thousands of paintings, drawings and sculptures.
He reportedly left behind 16,000 paintings. Another huge asset that would soon cause a major war between the heirs was Picasso's image rights.
Pablo Ruiz y Picasso was born in Malaga, Spain in October 1881 and passed away in April 1973.
He was a painter, sculptor, ceramicist, printmaker, stage designer, poet, and playwright.
Picasso is one of the most influential artists of all time and was the co-founder of the Cubist movement.
He also invented constructed sculpture and co-invented collage. Some of Picasso's best known works include Les Demoiselles d'Avignon and Guernica.
He painted as a child and adolescent. Picasso's work is often categorized into his Blue Period (1901-1904), Rose Period (1904-1906), African-influenced Period (1907-1909), Analytic Cubism (1909-1912), and Synthetic Cubism (1912-1919).
