What prompted Pablo Picasso's famous Blue Period?

Answer:

THE DEATH OF A FRIEND

The Blue Period refers to the works produced by Spanish painter Pablo Picasso between 1901 and 1904 when he painted essentially monochromatic paintings in shades of blue and blue-green, only occasionally warmed by other colors. According to the artist himself, this period was an artistic response to his depression over the death of Carlos Casagemas, a friend who shot himself because of an unrequited love for Germaine Pichot who was later depicted in Picasso's Les Demoiselles d'Avignon. "I began to paint in blue," he wrote, "when I realized that Casagemas had died."
