My Important People By Macarena Sanz Lozano

Hernan Cortes

Hernan Cortes was born on December 2 in 1485 Medellin , Spain . He had ten children (6 girls, 4 boys). His spouse was called Catalina Suárez Marcaida. His boat was Caravel. Sadly he died on December 2 1547.He is important to me because he discovered Mexico. In 1518, Cortés was to command his own expedition to Mexico, but Velázquez canceled it. Cortés ignored the order and set sail for Mexico with more than 500 men and 11 ships that fall. In February 1519, the expedition reached the Mexican coast.

Pablo Picasso

Pablo Picasso was born on October 25 1881, Malaga, Spain. Pablo Picasso had many styles of painting, which were mainly abstract ( unusual). Sadly Pablo Picasso died on April 8 1973.It's like Picasso was born an artist: his first word was "piz," short of lápiz the Spanish word for 'pencil.' His father Ruiz, an artist and art professor, gave him a formal education in art starting from the age of 7. By 13, Ruiz gave up painting as he felt that Pablo had surpassed him. He is important to me because I love art.
