THE FATHERS OF MODERN ART
Panayiotis Kalorkoti says about this work:
"Picasso, whose name must be the best known amongst 20th Century artists, appears twice in the Picasso print: surrounded by motifs associated with himself and his contemporaries (books on Gris, a Leger and Braque himself seated behind the table) he stares out directly in an indirect form, as a sculpted head which suggests both his work in different media and the classicism which underlay a central core of his output; and secondly in an image taken from an earlier print of my own, which jokingly reverses the roles of Nature and Art in what might popularly be seen as a 'typical' Picasso painting. The lute stands by the wall as a component part of a Cubist still-life, the unassuming raw material will be fragmented to celebrate the coming of Modernism."
