Braque and Picasso

George Braque once said of Picasso, the artist in collaboration with whom he changed the course of twentieth-century art, that "he used to be a great painter. Now he is merely a genius."

--Ben Eastham, "Genius among the beasts," The Times Literary Supplement (July 25, 2014), p. 18

Guess that's true. He did stop trying to establish anything with painting, and just reverted to simian genius.
