If you could marry anyone no longer living that was famous, who would it be and why? It can be any time period in the past and it can be same sex as you or opposite.
Being an artist, this one was easy for me. I absolutely adore Picasso's work. I always feel silly saying it. Why? Because it seems like people who don't know much about art but want to pretend to, at least know Picasso and will say he is their favorite. But, he really is mine. Second would be his friend Braque. In fact, lots of times they would paint the same subject matter side by side. Sometimes I like Braque's better.
I know, I know. Picasso was known to be an a-hole and a womanizer. Hey, I have to tell ya...if I had the choice I would much rather be his mistress than his wife. But the question does not allow that. It asks who you would marry. Therefore, I would marry him.
There are no romantic or sexual reasons for this. My God, just think of what I could have learned from him about painting! To paint along with him and learn from him would be one of the greatest gifts a person could be given. I have a very strong personality so I would have insisted. No sitting in the background for me. He would have taught me or listened to me bitch day and night.
That said, we may not have lived long. At least, not both of us. I am sure we would have fought. A lot. He was passionate and opinionated I am...passionate and opinionated. Quite possibly one of us would have done the other in during a particularly heated round of arguing.
But until that happened, what bliss to paint with Pablo. I would have even put up with his mistresses to learn from him. Besides, while he was away at play I could have had my own dalliances. There were several other artists I would not have minded "brushing" into. Ah, yes. You need some time away from the studio? No problem, dear. Don't hurry home. And when you come home, bring more paint.
