Pablo Picasso

Shot Of The Day: July 2, 2017





QOTD:
Well the girls would turn the color of the avocado
When he would drive
Down their street in his El Dorado
He could walk down your street
And girls could not resist his stare
Pablo Picasso never got called an asshole
Not like you

— Jonathan Richman

Backstory: If you don’t know how cool this song is – you could ask David Bowie or John Cale. And the man in the portrait? Why that’s Alf. He’s a friend who became a sculptor at age 60. I don’t think anyone ever called him an asshole either. — TAG
