Picasso Revisited

Managed to return to Becoming Picasso Paris 1901 at the Courtauld before it closed. It was good to see again and re-examine some of the pieces on show. On reflection my favourite paintings were his two self-portraits each entitled Yo-Picasso (I - Picasso). Both stunning and supremely confidently painted for a 19 year old. Both also good indicators of the huge talent that he was to go on and prove to be in 20th Century art.
