Apparently, the controversy wasn’t about the work’s authenticity or “think of the children!” getting an eyeful of fellatio, but, according to Met curator Gary Tinterow, the museum hesitated including the work in the upcoming exhibition because “it’s not very good.” The painterly dirty doodle was a joke between friends, painted in “1902 or 1903 in Paris or Barcelona” at Picasso’s “poorest.” About the so called X-rated painting, Picasso has written: “I’ve done worse.” Does that mean someone, somewhere may have a stockpile of Picasso porn and isn’t sharing?
