“Luncheon on the Grass” by Pablo Picasso
Confidential patient transcript (Paris 1960) Patient P. Ruiz presents traumatic incident acute depression syndrome; Prognosis - not good. Radical treatment required.
Dr GNAY: Well my work here is done. Your depression has been cured and your career is off and running.
PICASSO: I have you to thank for that. The funny thing is people point at my work and say, “he must be crazy!”
Dr GNAY: Thankfully there’s no cure for creativity!
PICASSO: How is your own painting coming along?
Dr GNAY: Just dabbles really. I’m thinking about quitting this psychologist gig and taking up art full time.
PICASSO: I think you should. If you are as good an artist as you are a teacher you will do fine.
Dr GNAY: Thanks. Don’t forget to take your medications.
PICASSO: Always doctor! Sip, sip, dab, dab.
