Photography as an art form has grown in popularity across the 20th and 21st centuries with many now choosing it ahead of traditional and contemporary oil painting. Others also find the techniques more accessible thanks to the number of people who already own some form of camera. The best way to learn the best techniques for photography is to study the works by the most impressive photographers out there, and Frenchman Robert Doisneau is certainly one of those.

France is amongst the most important countries for contributing high level artists but normally these have included painters from art movements such as impressionism including the likes of Claude Monet, Henri Rousseau and more. This photographer is therefore unusual in achieving so much in a country whose public find it easier to embrace oil painters.

Pablo Picasso is one such painter who achieved massive success, albeit as a Spaniard, and Doisneau actually embraced this by completing some portraits of this artistic celebrity. Many argue about the photographer's reasons for capturing Picasso, but there is no doubt that the photo below, entitled, "The Pains of Picasso" has become one of his best known works.
