Who ARTed: Weekly Art History for All Ages

Fun Fact Friday - Pablo Picasso, Art Thief? (encore)

March 18, 2022

This is an encore presentation of the mini episode I recorded on Pablo Picasso and his tendency to appropriate or even downright steal from those around him. In 1911, The Mona Lisa was stolen from the Louvre Museum and Pablo Picasso was one of the prime suspects. While he was not guilty of that crime, he was in possession of some other works that were stamped property of The Louvre and he went on trial facing deportation. 

Just a reminder while Picasso was knocked out of our Arts Madness Tournament in round 1 this year, you can still vote for your favorites among the remaining artists at www.whoartedpodcast.com

If you would like to support the show, I recently partnered with Ko-Fi to be able to accept donations to cover the costs of production. You can buy me a coffee at https://ko-fi.com/whoarted Because I do not want disruptive ads and I put nothing behind a paywall, listener donations are my only means of defraying the costs. I greatly appreciate your support.
