Picasso and the Norton Simon...

All this talk about stolen Picasso works of art... NON... Fifi had NOTHING to do with these thefts... Fifi would rather abscond avec un tableau de Henri Matisse... HOWEVER... if I could HAVE Picasso's "Woman with Book"...

Oooh Fifi I agree Woman with Book is fab; I regret I have visited Picasso all over the globe but not in my backyard! I will go see it soon tho I know the work. This speaks volumes that you as a Matisse lover would rank a Picasso so high, but you have ab fab exquis taste in art....you are the BEST!!

Love the Norton Simon. Free Friday, first Friday of the month, after 6 pm. I too live in Pasadena. Think I'll go visit Mr. Simon on Friday sauce. The Picasso you go on about I use as an avatar in some blogspaces.

The woman with the book caught my eye in google reader that I had to pop on over. Picasso was my fav growing up and still today. Enjoy! xo

Picasso was an interesting character to say the least. His death in 1973 left a void in the modern art world. Strangely enough, he was able to paint stunning portraits and still life painting. I have always been attracted to Picasso as a person and an artist.
Thank you for sharing this piece.
