I know what you mean. I have always liked Picasso' cubist stuff. I hate
his blue period work! It reminds me of bad art that's made in High School.
But we all come up with duds every now and then. I recently read a short
on Picasso' life and his personality. His view on women really bummed me
out. He had very little respect for women. Alas its' hard for me to
separate him from his art now. But I'll work on taking the image for the
image and not for its' maker.
