In prep for my upcoming Spain trip I've been reading Patrick O'Brian's biography of Picasso. It's so well written, and they actually knew each other well which provides for some good perspective. I'm reading on my kobo, so no pics, which I think will make it feel like even more of a discovery when I get there and see his work and legacy in the 'for reals'.
And... look at this big chunk o' linoleum he's playing with! My kind of guy.
