Surreal_Heidi

I agree with you, alias, that it's 13.

nanab

I didn't get it. What's #10,"No, you did." ?

msbonne

Of course, the only true choice, c).

Quote: "artist Pablo Picasso's full name contains how many different names?"
Quote: "Picasso's Full Name Has 23 Words"

I would say it is 13 (or 17) name since not every word is a name.

Pablo
Diego
José
Francisco de Paula
Juan
Nepomuceno
María de los Remedios
Cipriano de la Santísima
Trinidad
Martyr
Patricio
Clito
Ruíz y Picasso.

[My answer was of cource c)] ;)

msbonne

As I said, I have heard 2 different answers for this. 14 and 22. Neither were on the answer list. however, as 22 is 21 +1, and 22+ 1 = 23, I shall take
c) 23 as the answer.

I really did NOT get this one.

Surreal_Heidi

Nope.

And the answer is................ d) 23
Pablo Picasso (25 October 1881 – 8 April 1973) was a Spanish painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist, stage designer, poet and playwright who spent most of his adult life in France. Regarded as one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, he is known for co-founding the Cubist movement, the invention of constructed sculpture, the co-invention of collage, and for the wide variety of styles that he helped develop and explore. Among his most famous works are the proto-Cubist Les Demoiselles d'Avignon (1907), and Guernica (1937), a dramatic portrayal of the bombing of Guernica by the German and Italian airforces during the Spanish Civil War.
Picasso demonstrated extraordinary artistic talent in his early years, painting in a naturalistic manner through his childhood and adolescence. During the first decade of the 20th century, his style changed as he experimented with different theories, techniques, and ideas. After 1906, the Fauvist work of the slightly older artist Henri Matisse motivated Picasso to explore more radical styles, beginning a fruitful rivalry between the two artists, who subsequently were often paired by critics as the leaders of modern art.
Picasso's work is often categorized into periods. While the names of many of his later periods are debated, the most commonly accepted periods in his work are the Blue Period (1901–1904), the Rose Period (1904–1906), the African-influenced Period (1907–1909), Analytic Cubism (1909–1912), and Synthetic Cubism (1912–1919), also referred to as the Crystal period. Much of Picasso's work of the late 1910s and early 1920s is in a neoclassical style, and his work in the mid-1920s often has characteristics of Surrealism. His later work often combines elements of his earlier styles.
Exceptionally prolific throughout the course of his long life, Picasso achieved universal renown and immense fortune for his revolutionary artistic accomplishments, and became one of the best-known figures in 20th-century art.
1. Picasso's Full Name Has 23 Words
Picasso was baptized Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Martyr Patricio Clito Ruíz y Picasso. He was named after various saints and relatives. The "Picasso" is actually from his mother, Maria Picasso y Lopez. His father is named Jose Ruiz Blasco.
2. Picasso's First Word: Pencil
It's like Picasso was born an artist: his first word was "piz," short of lápiz the Spanish word for 'pencil.' His father Ruiz, an artist and art professor, gave him a formal education in art starting from the age of 7. By 13, Ruiz vowed to give up painting as he felt that Pablo had surpassed him.
3. Pablo's First Artworks
At the tender young age of 9, Picasso completed his first painting: Le picador, a man riding a horse in a bullfight.
His first major painting, an "academic" work is First Communion, featuring a portrait of his father, mother, and younger sister kneeling before an altar. Picasso was 15 when he finished it.
4. When He Was Born, The Midwife Thought He Was Stillborn
Picasso had such a difficult birth and was such a weak baby that when he was born, the midwife thought that he was stillborn so she left him on a table to attend his mother. It was his uncle, a doctor named Don Salvador, that saved him.
5. Picasso was a Terrible Student
No doubt about it, Picasso was brilliant: artistically, he was years ahead of his classmates who were all five to six years older than him. But Picasso chafed at being told what to do and he was often thrown into "detention":
For being a bad student I was banished to the 'calaboose' - a bare cell with whitewashed walls and a bench to sit on. I liked it there, because I took along a sketch pad and drew incessantly ... I could have stayed there forever drawing without stopping ”
- Pablo Picasso
6. Picasso's First Job
Picasso signed his first contract in Paris with art dealer Pere Menach, who agreed to pay him 150 francs per month (about US$750 today).
7. Did Picasso Steal the Mona Lisa?
Actually no, but in 1911, when the famous painting Mona Lisa of Leonardo da Vinci was stolen from the Louvre, the police took in Picasso's friend, the poet Guillaume Apollinaire. Apollinaire fingered Picasso as a suspect, so the police hauled him in for questioning. Both were later released.
8. Cubism: Full of Little Cubes
In 1909, Picasso and French artist Georges Braque co-founded an art movement known as cubism. Actually, it was a French art critic Louis Vauxcelles who first called it "bizarre cubiques" or cubism, after noting that Picasso and Braque's paintings are "full of little cubes."
9. Picasso claimed "Paul Cézanne was my one and only master."
In 1943, Pablo Picasso declared to photographer George Brassaï that artist Paul Cézanne was "my one and only master."...Read the whole story
10. Guernica
When a Nazi officer saw Guernica he asked Picasso "Was you who did it?" and Picasso is said to have responded, "No, you did!".
11. Picasso is a prolific artist
In all his life Picasso produced about 147,800 pieces, consisting of: 13,500 paintings, 100,000 prints and engravings, 300 sculptures and ceramics and 34,000 illustrations - an impressive 78-year career.
12. Picasso's iconic striped shirt is no ordinary garment
Picasso's iconic shirt is a Breton-striped shirt, which in 1858 became the official uniform for French seamen in Brittany. Picass was also a leader in fashion, and his Breton striped t-shirt was designed by Coco Chanel. The 21 horizontal stripes represent each of Napoleon's victories.
13. Exhibition at the Louvre Museum
Picasso was the first artist to receive a special honour exhibition at the Grand Gallery of the Louvre Museum in Paris in celebration of his 90 years.
14. Picasso was a poet and a playwright
After ending his first marriage in 1935, Picasso dabbled in poetry and later wrote two surrealist plays. Between 1935 and 1959 Picasso wrote over 300 poems that were mostly untitled except for an occasional date and location of where it was written. It was rumoured that Picasso predicted he'd be known more for his poetry than his paintings.
15. Where is Picasso buried?
Picasso was buried in the grounds of a château that he bought on a whim in 1958 in the village of Vauvenargues in the south of France.

Never mind, onwards and upwards :))

Can you imagine having to fill out a form with all the names!!

nanab

Yes @jyl , the question says saints and relatives, so it is a big bunch.

jyl

@nanab and @Surreal_Heidi seems to me that the "so many names" might reflect a whole "bunch" of relatives.

Random Thought:

Q: Is baseball mentioned in the Bible?
A. Sure! In the beginning, Cain struck out Abel, and the Prodigal son came home.

Surreal_Heidi

I don't have a clue, either. This is not my day for getting quizes right.

nanab

I haven't a clue, I wonder why someone would burden another with so many names.

msbonne

6 hippo. 6 people know this.

hippo

A tricky question. I wonder how may people in the world know this one... ???

msbonne

This could be a tricky one, It all depends on how you separate things. I just ran across this last week, and have seen three different answers. 2 of which are not represented here.

Watchman

I will go with the crowd and state the obvious ‘C’. LOL.. ;-))
