BECOMING YOUNG


In an exhibit hall in Cannes Hundreds of Picasso’s paintings were in chronological display from what he had painted as an adolescent all the way up to his experiments as an 85 year old master.


During the exhibit one lady approached Picasso and told him she did not understand. His beginning works were so mature, serious and solemn and then his later paintings are so free, different, and irrepressible. It seems like the dates should be reversed. How do you explain this? “Easily,” replied Picasso. “It takes a long time to become young.”
