I’m not exaggerating when I say this– this is one of the most shocking things I have ever discovered. Pablo Picasso, the man who painted many pictures, died in 1973. 1973!! He has somehow finessed everyone (me) that he was a 1500s painter. Next thing you’re going to tell me is that Celine Dion has a net worth of $800 million(she does, look it up, I can’t believe it).
This fucking guy died 13 years after my own father was born. My dad probably saw him paint his last picture live on PPV. They talk about this man like he went toe to toe with Van Goh in painting competitions. Van Goh died in 1890, I also had to look that up, because for all I know, he could still be alive. Picasso had to be the only artist who was famous while he was still alive. He was probably doing shows in Las Vegas with Elvis strumming his guitar with a paint brush, probably had season tickets for the murderers row Yankees in the 20s, helped the Wright Brother’s build the first airplane. Picasso outlived John F. Kennedy by 10 fucking years!
His wikipedia has like 20 sections about the time periods of his paintings; the blue period and rose period. That to me sounds like they would have taken place in the 15th century. While breaking this shocking news, I just found out he was born in 1881. He lived until he was 91 years old, he was born in a time period where people were dying from the common cold. No wonder his blue period was so depressing, he probably just wanted to die already.
Alright, I gotta take some time to myself right now and think about how everything I once thought was a lie. Stay tuned for more shocking discoveries that I find out.
