    Picasso’s genius was in convincing rich patrons that his stuff was valuable. Even this many years after his death, his self-advertising has kept his work in high value.

    If you examine Picasso’s work, you will see that he was a great artist. He broke ground for future artists.
    Yes he did know how to draw!

    This cartoon would have been funnier for me if the last panel had shown Horace, ripping off a painting from a museum.

    Just Horace’s expression (or lack thereof) in the center panel has me laughing. You can actually see him come to an epiphany that he’s been doing it wrong, all this time.

    This, from Wikipedia:

    “Swag as slang: Swag, slang originating in the early 1800s for stolen goods or booty; possibly carried by a swagman”
    ==
    Also 2nd usage of term, from Wikipedia: "Swag, slang originating from the Scottish slang word “swagger” which was a description of the way some Scots walk (in a swaying motion). The word was altered in the English language to mean “the way one presents oneself”.

    Oliver Twist made it popular. Still if you gonna still something try rye instead of Rhies.
    .
    Now if I was going to steal a museum piece I’d snag the Nefertiti bust. 1 of a kind, groundbreaking, and has caused more international trouble than the Elgin Marbles = much higher $swag value.

    The Pic hasn’t hit his 100 year mark yet. By 200 only the genuis’ survive, by 500 only the greatest are ‘re-discovered’.
