Picasso has always been a difficult artist for me to grasp. He's so...well abstract.

Have a terrific day Ana. Big hug. :)

Sandee,
He was the father of Cubism a new way of showing what is seen.
Not that much abstract.


Herrad,

Yes,, scary. The painting is dated 1937... if we remember WW2 was just around the corner...

I always liked the way he looked/saw the world. I use to have several of his prints hanging around my apartment when I was single. He just is so interesting to me.
Thanks for sharing these. In his book, that I have, these prints are in there. I may go looking for that book today.
Thanks for a blast from the past.
