Pablo Picasso (1881–1973), Spanish artist. quoted in Hélène Parmelin, Picasso Plain, ch. 4, published in France (1959, repr. 1963).
Picasso described himself as "a painter without style," explaining: "Style is often something which locks the painter into the same vision, the same technique, the same formula during years and years, sometimes during one's whole lifetime." (Quoted in prefatory text to exhibition catalog, Geneva, 1963).
