Happy 130th Birthday, Pablo Picasso
“My mother said to me, ‘If you are a soldier, you will become a general. If you are a monk, you will become the Pope.’ Instead, I was a painter, and became Picasso.”
130 years ago today in Málaga, Spain, Baby Picasso made his debut onto the world stage. Little did his mama know her bundle of joy would rock the art world to its core, yet here we are, decades later, still in awe of his work. It amazes me, as I look through my own Picasso collection (well, my collection of photos of other people’s Picasso’s!) how intensely their presence impacts the mood of a room. Clearly, although the artist is gone, the art lives on.
Happy 130th Birthday, Picasso!
