When Richard Prince Met Picasso

Richard Prince‘s latest stirring exhibition, “Prince/Picasso,” encouraged by the Museo Picasso Malanga, reflects his two-year intensive exploration of Pablo Picasso. 63-year-old Prince has said of Picasso, “He never lets go of the body.” Prince shares Picasso’s infatuation with the female form. The result here is a menagerie of female nakedness: engorged limbs, abundant, rounded bottoms, twisting torsos, undulating breasts, and faces scratched out and replaced with mask-like sketches or Picasso’s own statuesque heads.
