Boffo: A big part of the reason Picasso always had a hard time keeping studio partners

It would appear that Jeff Martin is confusing Pablo Picasso for Randall Munroe.

It would also appear that Martin loves all of my least favorite tropes, as this comic contains the always hilarious (false) premise that abstract art isn't real art.


  1. How short of material do you have to be to take on modern art, a topic cartoonists have been lampooning for at least 50 years? That's almost as timely and exciting a target for mockery as opera. What's next, jokes about scrimshaw? Or the quadrille?

  2. Modern-art-as-punching-bag is my least favorite cliche. So annoying. Art History should be a required subject.
