The exhibition Picasso vs. Rusiñol, organized by the Museu Picasso and the Museu Cau Ferrat (Sitges), explores the various connections between both artists and shows the influence of Rusiñol and the Barcelona art scene on Picasso, an influence from which he gradually distanced himself as he became more established in Paris.

    This outstanding tour through of more than 250 images sheds light on the shifting relationship between Picasso and the modernista artist par excellence, Santiago Rusiñol. At the outset, Picasso deeply admired Rusiñol as a man and an artist and adopted many of his postulates and practices. Eventually, however, after this period of absorption — to use the term employed by Eduard Vallès, the exhibition curator — Picasso distanced himself from Rusiñol almost for good through satire and caricaturisation. This path — illustrated to perfection by Picasso’s 21 portraits of Rusiñol — is a paradigmatic example of the creative and life processes of the painter from Malaga.
