Another look at Picasso

Having spent an hour or so looking round the Picasso museum in his home town of Malaga, I have to ask, at the end, was he mocking the art establishment? Not only were the images uninspirational, the execution of the paintings was at best indifferent and at worse, pathetic. It is almost as if he was goading the art world to dismiss his work. It is all the more disappointing because his early work held the promise of being good in the impressionist style.
I have already made the pilgrimage to the Museo Reina Sofia to see Picasso's painting 'Guernica' and again came away disappointed. On this occasion one can't fault the content nor the use of an austere palette but again the execution, the lack of basic painting skill that captured one's attention.
Is it time to reappraise his work?
