For me, this is Picasso at his most introspective, reflective, creative phase demonstrating his love for Claude`s mother and the enduring love for Marie-Therese. 1948 was a pivotal year in Picasso`s developement of intaglio in his paintings and ceramics. Perhaps, one of the happiest times in his life, as shown in Claude`s face and body. 02 October

I'll be honest, five years ago I didn't really enjoy Picasso as much as I do now. He is not everyone's cup of tea, especially his avant garde work, but when you look at his hole body of work, I can't help but be impressed. He had such a wide range of styles and was quite successful in most of them. Granted he was an arrogant man and I'm not a fan of his personality, but I don't think he'd much care what we think. I just hope if there's an afterlife, Henri Rosseau is having his own back. :-)'

You can appreciate his work and/or someday will have the strength to wake up and sketch or doodle or copy the works of the master. It's all good. At least you got up to see this website.I used to not appreciate Picasso until I read more about him. Sure, he was a misogynist but his life's work is amazing. I started out at age 18 months drawing circles with dots in the middle under the curtains and now am pretty prolific and inspired and I'm turning 70 this month.'

I have been inspired to take up painting again at the age of 72. I have been painting for a year now and have produced about 50 pictures which I gibe away to family and friends. Picasso/Goya/Velasquez/Van Gough/ Dali and others give me inspiration. I paint on cardboard,board.canvas, ceramic etc - My daughter went to Central St Martins- one of my sister is a very good painter and lives in Cornwall and another (self taught) paints in her studio in Cheltenham - to me as an old man suffering from combat induced PTSD, and in lock down, painting has been a joy and theraputic'
