Picasso painted mostly from imagination or memory.
The art critic Arthur Danto said Picasso's work constitutes a "vast pictorial autobiography” which gives some basis to the common idea that "Picasso invented a new style each time he fell in love with a new woman”.

In the last years of his life, painting became an obsession with Picasso, and he would date each picture with absolute precision trying to crystallize individual moments of time.
Pablo Picasso worked up until the day he died at age 91; literally painting till 3 am on Sunday, April 8th 1973, which was just hours before his death.
