This guy got more ass than you ever will.

Commonly known facts about Picasso: cubism, Guernica and the blue period. (Slightly) lesser known Picasso fact: he went through ladies as quickly as he did paint. And he frequently turned his mistresses into muses. One of his longest running affairs started with a barely legal French girl when he was 46.

Right now, the Gagosian Gallery has his drawings and paintings of Marie-Thérèse Walter on display. Normally, Picasso works are shown at expensive musuems you’d have to sneak into, but the show at the Gagosian is completely FREE. So you can pop in and see how many different crooked eyed portraits one girl can inspire.

Gagosian Gallery
522 West 21st Street, between 10th and 11th Avenues [Chelsea, Manhattan]
Open Tuesdays to Sundays through June 25

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
