What was Picasso Really Like?

Posted by on Sep 20, 2014 in Words

Saturday Morning. ‘There aren’t many left who can tell us what Picasso was really like,’ said the voice on the radio. My first thought. I imagine much of recorded history to be a sequence of events offering little sense of the inner experience of those who have helped shape the world.

And now I wonder if there’s a place for Soul Biographies in the capturing of such experience, so that we may come to know such iconic figures. Figures who have colored the complexion of these years. Of our years.

And then I wondered about who on earth might appear on such a list.
