I had very little appreciation for Picasso until just now. His shrewd business practices have permanently entrenched him in American history as the founder of art techniques he admitted stealing. More books were written about him during his lifetime than the more than 400 years since Shakespeare’s life.
Here are two interesting essays from Harper’s magazine:
Picasso in Vallauris
“No matter who I am, or what I am, or how I live, my work must stand or fall by its own merits.”
“The only thing we can be sure of is that this old body will only last a few more. So why trouble about me instead of my work? That’s a wonderful hat you have there!”
