Picasso - boy with a pipe

 

 

Painting is just another way of keeping a diary.
Pablo Picasso

The art world today had some big news!  Picasso's painting sold for $104 million! 

He painted this at the young age of 24 while in Paris and it's now the most expensive piece in the art world.

I like Picasso. He was so psychological. He painted "emotions" and that's what I like most about him.

Hi Carol...
Thank you for stopping by my journal and sharing with me.  I love this painting.  Unbelievable how much the value of artwork after the death of a painter.  Most of them were starving.  They'd probaly roll in their graves at the staggering amounts offered for their works of art.  I can't imagine 104 million!  I enjoy your journal so very much.  Thank you for sharing your knowledge and you soul.  From my heart to you and your mother...with love and understanding.  gloria

The best way to judge a person is by the palate of his mind. What goes on canvas or paper will give you a view of the soul.
