Here's my pencil study of one of the world's greatest artists. 
Yes, if one uses the yardstick of how he's influenced the currents that flow through the mainstream of art. There is almost no art being produced today that has not been influenced by Picasso's prodigious and varied output.

The painting on the wall behind him is my version of a mildly erotic Picasso painting. 
Here's what the LA Times said about his erotic exhibition in Paris in 2001:

The first major retrospective of Pablo Picasso's erotic art went on display last week, showing that nearly 30 years after his death, the celebrated Spanish artist still has the power to shock.
In "Picasso Erotique," at the Jeu de Paume museum in central Paris through May 20, brothel scenes painted in the artist's youth give way to more violent images of love, passion and rape in his middle age, followed by the eye-popping voyeurism of the elderly Picasso that leaves little to the imagination.
"This show could never be put on in the United States. The political correctness there acts as a new form of terrorism for the art world," said Gerard Regnier, director of the Paris Picasso Museum.
