Happy Birthday, Pablo Picasso!

Pablo Picasso was born on this day in 1881 and, in addition to creating masterpieces throughout his lifetime, became the subject matter of many a master photographer as well.  Celebrate what would have been his 131st birthday by taking a peak at the artist himself as seen through the eyes of his contemporaries.
