Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for September 17, 1997
Nate Wright's "LIVES OF THE ARTISTS" series: PABLO PICASSO! Young Pablo chats with an art critic... Critic: Pablo, you seem to paint in distinct phases... Pablo: I call them "periods"! I've already gone through my "circus" period, my "classical" period, my "blue" period... And now THIS! My "period" period! Critic: *thinking* I wonder if my editor will let me trade places with the food critic... Pablo: Who says modern art is pointless?
