Garçon à la pipe, 1905, By Pablo Picasso (8/10)

Garçon à la Pipe (English: Boy with a Pipe) is a painting by Pablo Picasso. It was painted in 1905 when Picasso was 24 years old, during his Rose Period, soon after he settled in the Montmartre section of Paris, France. The oil on canvas painting depicts a Parisian boy holding a pipe in his left hand and wearing a garland or wreath of flowers.
The painting was famously sold at a 2004 auction for $104 million, a price many art critics consider incongruous with the painting’s actual artistic merit
