Deborah,

I missed the beginning of this string, but knowing what little I know about
Pablo Picasso, it wouldn't be hard for me to question his claims about his
subjects. I think he was pretty creative in everything he did, including
anything he may have said about his work. But since we can't ask him, any
statements must be based on conjecture.
