Picasso Paid His Restaurant Bills With Artistic Doodles

Pablo Picasso was often found drawing on the paper tablecloths at his favorite restaurants. Restaurateurs would often ask him to leave the drawings instead of paying the bill. According to legend, when a restaurateur asked him to sign the drawing, Picasso reportedly replied "I came to eat, not buy the restaurant."
