A little over Ibrahim Kodra ...

Ibrahim Kodra (born in Ishëm, April 22, 1918 - February 7, 2006 died in Milan) was an Albanian painter with international reputation. Kodra is considered the most important Albanian painter internationally known. His life in Tirana dormitory "Naim Frashëri" school is terminated when at the 20 years of age (1938) leaves Albania forever with a scholarship from royal court to the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome. He leaves Rome and goes in Milan, at the Academy of Fine Arts in Brera. He exhibits in Rome, Milan, Venice, Paris, Belgrade, New York, creates comparisons and reports with great painters such as Picasso, Marc Chagall, Henry Matisse, Lucio Fontana, Renato Guttuso, poets, writers, critics and directors by Eugenio Montale and Vittorio Sereni, from Bertoni to Bruno Munari, and Giuseppe Marotta.

In 1948, Ibrahim Kodra became a friend of Pablo Picasso, precisely on this topic at the "International Peace Conference of Rome", in which they both performed a profoundly artistic research. In Kodra's artistic research, the Cubism of Pablo Picasso have a lot of influence, especially after their friendship in Rome in 1948, to the point that the same Spanish newspaper talking about Picasso pictured Kodra as "the last post-cubist in Europe."
