Picasso at Tate
On Wednesday this week Tate Britain opens Picasso and Modern British Art, which explores the dire effect this tripe-peddler ... er ... sorry ... genius ... had on British artists (title link). This is probably the first exhibition of its kind, more than 90 years after Picasso's first visit to London. It brings together 150 works, some by Picasso and some by those British artists who were influenced by him, such as Henry Moore. Picasso's Nude, Green-Leaves and Bust is one of his paintings on display. Tickets cost £14 adults, £12.20 silver surfers! Tourist ripoff. CLICK for a BBC London News video with Brenda Emannus.
