Good Designers Copy, Great Designers Steal

“Good designers copy; Great designers steal.”

Pablo Picasso, the first living artist to be featured in the Louvre, influenced the artistic world in a uniquely original way. So why is he known for saying “Good artists copy, great artists steal”?

It’s true. Picasso really said, “Good artists copy, great artists steal.” Or at least, since his death in 1973, everyone believes he said that.

I read an old article about this which you might find interesting.

Now, would you agree on this quote or do you have something else in mind? Share your thoughts.

Pablo Picasso was a Spanish painter, draughtsman, and sculptor who lived most of his life in France. He is widely known for co-founding the Cubist movement and for the wide variety of styles that he helped develop and explore.
