Thursday Theory

Picasso thought: "You'll feel a mix of lust and shame standing in front of this painting. You'll be attracted and repelled. It will disorient you, both spatially and morally."

Nah. People just take pictures of it as if it were a bowl of fruit.

In worldwide galleries I am often embarassed by my lack of a camera. I just have to reassure myself that seeing and framing the image are different activities.
I was once almost crushed by tourists trying to snap a famous Louvre image, and to this day I ask if they ever even saw the painting...

Bowls of fruit are sometimes best appreciated internally
