At times, Picasso’s late works drew criticism for being repetitive or derivative, including those inspired by iconic paintings from the history of European art by artists such as Velázquez, Goya, Poussin, Delacroix and Manet. Yet it was always Picasso’s enduring bond with the history of painting that brought about innovation in his work, or as he put it: ‘What does it mean for a painter to paint in the manner of So-and-So or to actually imitate someone else? What’s wrong with that? On the contrary, it’s a good idea… And it’s at the very moment you make a botch of it that you’re yourself.’ - Art Gallery NSW Website
