Art Review -- Late Picasso

"Buste," November 1970, Oil on canvas

Picasso's current buzz show at Gagosian, "Mosqueteros," left me wondering why everyone thought these his "later works" were so crazy? Yes, this one here (coincidentally my favorite) may resemble an erudite bunny rabbit jester, but it's not a far departure from a lot of the work he was doing just a decade or two before.

It was so insane to see a line outside for the Picasso show and like 3 abandoned galleries next to it that had to close down...
