Adjust Your Sails!

Share with your friends on Facebook

There was an American soldier who met up with the famous painter and sculptor, Pablo Picasso. The two of them were seated at a Parisian café and decided to have lunch. 

Soon their conversation turned to art. Picasso described his style of art which was not traditional. 

The soldier said, “I don’t like modern art.” “Why not?” Picasso replied. “Modern art is not realistic. I prefer paintings that actually look like the things they are supposed to.”

Picasso said nothing. To break the silence the soldier decided to share a few pictures from his wallet of his girlfriend back in the States. 

Picasso looked at each of the photos politely. Then holding one of the photos in his hand, he commented on his girlfriend’s picture. “Wow, is your girlfriend really this small?”
