Pondering Picasso 02/25/2011
Of all the artists of the early 20th Century I think Picasso is probably the most notorious. The first painting I saw of his was one of his cubist women. Frankly I didn't like them. Then I made a trip the the San Diego Museum of Art
an saw his "Boy Leading a Horse" and I knew then I did not know very much about him as an artist.
Recently I took his image and put my feelings about what I have read about him. (Some not so flattering) I suspect he never gave a fig or a fig leaf wheather anyone likes him or his art or not. That is what makes him interesting to me.
He was the quintessential example of the modern artist of his time. Almost like a "Rock Star" in popularity.
You have to look at his work and his personal life over time to see the man.
Just musing . . .
