Ichundichundich. Portraits of Picasso

Museum Ludwig, Cologne

(curated by Dr. Kerstin Stremmel)
24 September 2011 til 15 January 2012

Pablo Picasso was not only an extraordinarily gifted artist but also a master of self-promotion. Almost all great 20th century portraitists photographed this exceptional artist.
The Museum Ludwig's show "Ichundichundich" will feature about 200 photographs by such artists as Cecil Beaton, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Doisneau, Man Ray, Irving Penn, or Lee Miller. It is the first time, that an extensive survey will address the balancing act between Picasso's desire to control his public image and the standards and visions of famous photographers. The show juxtaposes staged portraits with classical sessions and snapshots reaching from the 1910s and 1920s - when Picasso developed from the Montparnasse Bohemian into the star artist - to the late years. Such iconic classics as Irving Penn's photograph showing Picasso with hat, turned up coat collar and intense gaze will accompany less well known images, some of them very intimate. A comprehensive catalogue will accompany the exhibition.
