I keep reading about people arguing if Picasso was a great artist or not...If a painter paints a flower upside down and all others tells him that this is amazing, than, that painter will always paint that flower upside down. Picasso did the opposite. He was always in search for something new, he started with cubism, than abstractionism, surrealism, and his Blue and Rose Periods had a huge influence in modern art. If you all judge a painter if it's good or not by how well and realistic he draws or paints, than you should check his younger creations...he paint in that manner to. Since the invention of photography, most of the artist found themselves without a job, who wants a painting portrait that might took even a year or two to develop when you could have one by photographing yourself in just few minutes, so the artist had to reinvent themselves by searching something new. Brancusi or Giacometti did the same thing in sculpture, Gaudi or Gropius encourage something new in architecture, and that's why they deserve to be where they are now in the history of art. I'm not saying that Picasso was a great artist, most certainly not in my top ten list, but the media made him what it is, because they saw in him a future potential of making money...allot of them, that's why we see now how works by Picasso break world records at Christie's or Sotheby's
