Exhibition room 7. Picasso Paints
the Gardens of Rusiñol

In 1901 the magazine Arte Joven, which Picasso co-edited, published a portrait of Rusiñol in a setting from one of his of garden paintings, together with a favourable assessment of the artist’s work.

With this portrait in green ink — the predominant colour in Rusiñol’s oil paintings — Picasso acknowledged his role as a referent for the painting of gardens, a subject the young artist tackled in the manner of Rusiñol, although landscape was never to be one of his major interests.
