Impeccable simplicity of sophistication, glory of innocence and naïve journey of joy – that is Pirosmani. Born in 1862, he lived his whole life in extreme poverty and had to paint the walls and signboards of local restaurants for living. Pirosmani’s paintings mostly depict Georgian festive occasions, peasants, merchants, he liked to paint animals just like children do. Impressed by Niko’s paintings, Pablo Picasso painted his portrait. The portrait (which is a graphic painting, with strait pencil sticks) perfectly well reflects the geniality of Pirosmani’s primitivism. After seeing Pirosmani’s paintings one can easily understand what Picasso meant when saying “It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child’’.
