It's No Wonder That We're All Broke

If there are people on this earth that have the kind of money to spend on something as ugly as this piece of doo doo , then I am definitely on the wrong end of the spectrum.

It's supposed to be a painting of his mistress. Who was his mistress, the wicked witch of the west?.

As ol' Harry Carry would say. "HOOOOOOLY COWWWW!!!!"

That chick does look a little discombobulated.
He must have painted her the morning after.

After "what" I won't even try to figure out. It even scares me.

They don't care!

The guy that would buy a Picasso would think we are stupid for spending
a $100,000 for a corvette or two million for a hemi.

Perhaps he would be more right then we are as a $100,000 invested in art will make a $100,000 investment in cars pale by comparison over the long haul.

Also he is not out in the garage Saturday fixing brakes, changing oil and waxing the Picasso.

Leno said that was actually a picture of Kenny Roger's new face. [Good Lord, have you seen that old fart lately? ]


And thanks for the laughs, I had to get up because I couldn't sleep due to someone on my mind, and needed a good chuckle to lighten my mood. Thanks fellas.

Downright ugly.

Historically important though, not only as a remnant of Picasso's love life, but as a representation of love, war, and the interplayed beauty/ugliness of women. The blocky, pieced-together style is known as "Cubism". Earlier "analytical cubism" eventually developed into "synthetic cubism", which was the source of "collage". When kindergarten kids make collages with magazine cutouts and elmer's glue, it's due to the influence of pieces such as this.

History aside, yes, the price tag is still extremely high. However, keep in mind that the selling price of a piece of art is not necessarily indicative of its worth. It could just mean that two really rich guys were in the same auction house at the same time, and got in a bidding war.

Quote:
This cubist painting also shows that Dora Maar is a "double sided" woman - it shows her wisdom and that she liked to cry. Dora Maar did not like cats, but Picasso painted it on purpose to show that he was in control of this lady. The cat claws on Dora Maar shows that the relationship between her and Picasso reached its climax. In addition to this, the Second World War was going on which reflected the hard lives that both of them were suffering in Paris.

My wife has asked me fairly regularly when I'm going to paint her portrait. I can imagine her reaction if I presented her with THAT as the finished product. Holy Cow, I take it back, I don't WANT to imagine that. It's bad enough hearing about all the cars, trucks, tools, and junk.
Somebody paid for the name on the painting if you ask me. Sure I know about cubism and the "signifigance" of the painting. It's still an ugly piece of *. Picasso actually did some kick* stuff technically AND aesthetically. Whether I personally liked it or not, it was still good stuff. That portrait isn't among those things. She must have just really pissed him off or something.
