Ryan Gander: Picasso Portrayal Of Self

When I hear the name “Picasso,” an array of cognitive images uncontrollably fills my head. This response is as instant as it is automatic.

Curiously, however, not a single one of these images that springs to mind is of an artwork by Picasso. Instead, they are all historically significant photographs of the man himself. The images of Picasso precede those of his artworks. It could be speculated that the image of Picasso, the artist, as a persona, is a cliché. It’s arguable that this phenomenon is the result of a deliberate strategy, orchestrated by Picasso.
