Deadly Sins

Le Rêve (1932)


Picasso is a respected artist. His work and style are recognized worldwide. Museums are desperate to get their hands on any Picasso work, so much so, that they’re willing to get just sketchbooks and doodles. I visited the Tate Modern in London two years ago, and they had an exhibit on Picasso. There were some of his famous paintings (like Le Rêve pictured above) but it was mainly sketches. Doodles on the backs of napkins, ripped or smeared charcoal work. The exhibit didn’t show his talent, it showed his scratch work. Museums are so desperate to show off the fact they have Picasso’s work that they’re willing to ruin his image in the process.
