Picasso Mania at the Grand Palais
"Will I long continue to paint? Yes, because for me it is a mania." The answer given by Pablo Picasso in an interview in Marseille in 1959 now demonstrates its full meaning in the Galeries Nationales du Grand Palais. One thing is certain, Picasso’s mania for his work gave rise to an obsession with Pablo Picasso on the part of others, including the artists to whom he became an inspiration. So we have ‘Picasso Mania’! Both chronologically and thematically, the exhibition looks at the explosive confrontation that contemporary artists inspired by Picasso's work have continued since the 1960s and recounts the formation of the myth associated with his name. The artist’s major stylistic phases and emblematic woks are presented, including, some emblematic Picasso works, such as "Les Demoiselles d'Avignon" and "Guernica", as well as contemporary works by David Hockney, Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Martin Kippenberger, Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Jeff Koons.
