Picasso & Braque

One day a painter named Roland Penrose dropped in on Pablo Picasso, who was in the midst of entertaining Georges Braque (a fellow Cubist) and his wife. "Do you know Penrose?" Picasso asked Braque as introductions were made. "Oh, yes, but I haven't seen him for about twenty years," Braque replied, "and at first sight I didn't recognize him, he's changed so little!"

[Picasso's collaboration with Braque (between 1911 and 1918) later ended, after Picasso remarked that "Braque is my wife" (words which, as Time art critic Robert Hughes pointed out, were as disparaging to women as to Braque.)]
