Picasso exhibit at the Art Gallery of Ontario
At 10 a.m. sharp I bought a ticket for the Picasso: Masterpieces from the Musée National Picasso, Paris exhibit at the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO). I was lucky to be in Barcelona during the 2004 blue period exhibition and saw most of his art then, as well as the works of Spanish Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí.
I have to admit I’m not a Picasso fan. Personally I think he just got carried up and away in the art scene at the time and he was fortunate enough to be prolific and eccentric, as most artists are.
I always find it funny how male painters are shamelessly obsessed with women’s breasts. Get over it already, they’re just lumps of fat designed to feed babies! Picasso was a notorious womanizer and I think it’s evident in most of the pieces currently on display at the AGO. But that’s my theory, and I’m sure someone can contradict my claims easily. Breasts everywhere!
There’s no doubt that he was tremendously talented. If you’re in Toronto, go to the exhibit and experience it for yourself. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
