Invention and recycling, quotation and appropriation are all inseparable from Picasso's later work. Amongst the 19th century painters in his pantheon, Manet shines in the company of Ingres, Delacroix, Courbet, Degas, Renoir, Cézanne and Gauguin. Of all the images that excited his admiring and destructive vitality, Le déjeuner sur l'herbe had few rivals.
The Musée d'Orsay exhibition, an extension of Picasso and the Masters at the Galeries Nationales du Grand Palais, brings about one of the most fruitful encounters in the history of painting.

The exhibition is now over.
