Picasso Stole Lunch on the grass
"Le Déjeuner sur l'herbe (Lunch on the grass)" after Manet
Pablo Picasso, 3 March 1960 - 20 August 1960, Vauvenargues - Oil on canvas, 130 x 195 cm - Musée national Picasso-Paris, MP215
This stole is inspired by Pablo Picasso's work "Lunch on the grass after Manet".
This is about observing a work that has been painted from another famous work. Picasso's oil on canvas indeed looks at another painting: "Lunch on the grass" by Édouard Manet, a work that caused a scandal
at the end of the 19th century. This painting by Manet already quoted Titian's "Concert champêtre".
The works of the great ancient masters inspired Pablo Picasso in his daily practice of painting. And Manet belongs to this category of painters with whom Picasso has become familiar: references to Manet
are not only prestigious quotations, it is much more a repertoire of concrete practices in the act of painting from which Picasso draws with admiration.
