Not as famous.


Guernica. Most famous?



Of course, as with anybody who likes art, I appreciate all of this different creations, some more than others. His paintings intrigue me — as I am sure he wanted it to be.

Quite the man, again at so many different levels and angles.

I did NOT know that he was baptized, in Málaga, Spain, as (and wait for it): Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Ruiz y Picasso. Wow. That is impressive. Wonder whether he, ever, remembered all of those names. I did a quick, cursory search to find his original birth certificate or registration, but failed. I am sure it is online, somewhere.

Oh! And in case you were wondering, ‘Pablo‘ is ‘Paul‘ in Spanish. That was easy enough.

136-years ago. That was a longtime. He died, aged 91, in 1973. So, I do remember him — alive.
