The first one is actually way too "structured" to be Picasso. It's Fernand Leger, IIRC.

Compare it to an actual Picasso:

regarding #2...the Dali. He sure did epitomize the sacred and the profane. His religious imagery is to me extraordinary. And yet he said such things as (I'm paraphrasing): Nothing is more beautiful than the smell of human excrement.


Uh.........ok.

I think that's the only picture I've ever seen that depicts our Lord with short hair ... a feature I'm convinced is true.

You realize you're not such an artsy-fartsy smarty-pants when all you can identify is the Dali, LOL.

Interesting. Why do you think Jesus had short hair? Short hair with locks, or just short hair?
