Lesson Plans

Out on a limb

I hesitate to write this tonight but it is bothering me so here goes.
This week-end I saw the Picasso show in L.A. I left feeling like the boy felt
in the story " The Emperor's New Clothes". I was wondering, is there anyone
else out there that doesn't like Picasso's work? I appreciate his
contributions to art. I think I have an understanding of what he was doing.
If his art is meant to disturb me then he succeeded in doing so. At times I
felt that the comentary was just reaching for symbolism. There was so much
analysis and comparison. Maybe Picasso wasn't REALLY putting that much mumbo
jumbo into his work? Maybe he was just having a good time. He said as a
child he drew like Rembrandt and it took him a lifetime to draw like a child.
I think he painted like a distrubed child.
Well, sorry I just had to get this off my mind. Hope I havn't offended any.
