>>2389323 he had good marketing, now he has good history. He doesnt need to be good. Then theres that one guy whos gonna come in and say he lied and made his dad do works for him. some other guy will say youre ignorant about art history. and a fight will ensue
>>2389323 he was on the cutting edge of art for decades, invented cubism, inspired countless artists, was a pillar of the modernist era, was alive through and participated in many different movements, and was perhaps the most prolific artist ever.
>>2389326 this, essentially. you need to remember that the artistic community back then was a lot smaller and a lot of the famous artists from that period all knew each other and hung out to share ideas. modernism (as an era beginning with impressionism) was a period when artists kept trying to reinvent art and push the boundaries. the dude was really good at that and other artists thought he was onto something. if you look at his early stuff, he was obviously very skilled at academic art until he got bored and said fuck it. such was the trend.
but if you want to know why he's literally famous, it's because the museums said so.
