    Yeah. It just doesn't get me. I'm not sure what people see when they look at a Picasso, probably clever marketing

    Looks like his blue period. He was into simplification, I think, not so much about detail and exact rules of form. It does capture the essence of a budding prepubescent girl, though, doesn't it?

    Yeah, maybe so. At a certain point it's about personal taste. To me, a lot of Picasso's work is like the optical Illusion like the black and blue dress. I see it a certain way
