Picasso's work appears never to have ceased to haunt the imagination of his peers. The great stylistic periods and certain emblematic works by Picasso like Les Demoiselles d'Avignon or Guernica will be answered by contemporary artworks. The publication will showcase the rich confrontation with Picasso's work undertaken by contemporary artists since the 1960s.Pablo Picasso's vibrant presence struck a chord in the 1960s with the return to Picassien archetypal figures by Pop Art and Narrative Figuration by Warhol, Lichenstein, Equipo Cronica, Erro. Martin Kippenberger's self-portraits reveal the impact of Picasso's public image on the imagination of 20th century artists. David Hockney's Polaroid composites and multi-screen videos echo Picasso's Cubism and his exploration of a polyfocal space. Picasso's stylistic eclecticism, his "cannibalism" of the old masters, the free craftsmanship of the later paintings inspired a new generation of artists like Georg Baselitz, Jean-Michel Basquiat, or Julian Schnabel. Rineke Dijkstra's video installation I See a Woman Crying (Weeping Woman), (2009-2010) will demonstratethe presence of Picasso's work in contemporary imagination, in its most diverse means of expression (cinema, digital images, from videos to comic strips).With works by Francis Bacon, Georg Baselitz, Jean-Michel Basquiat, David Douglas Duncan, Rineke Dijkstra, David Hockney, Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Martin Kippenberger, Jeff Koons, Paul McCarthy, Richard Prince, Sigmar Polke, Julian Schnabel, Andy Warhol.
