60 outstanding Picasso’s gathered from around the galleries of the world and chosen to show the influence of Picasso upon Modern British Art and Artists. Placed between, amongst and about the Picasso’s are the works of those he so influenced. Henry Moore and Picasso; David Hockney and Picasso; Francis Bacon and Picasso; Wyndham Lewis and Picasso and so on. The exhibition establishes Picasso’s enormous influence on leading British Modernists. It is astonishing this has not been put together before now and it was a real privilege to see it during the festival. It runs until the 4th November 2012.
