This year marks the 50th anniversary of the death of Pablo Picasso (1881–1973), the renowned Spanish painter who is considered one of—if not the—most influential artists of the 20th century. To mark the occasion, Almine Rech gallery is presenting a diverse, two-part group exhibition across both its locations on the Upper East Side in New York, and as one of the inaugural shows at its new Tribeca space. Curated by French art critic Eric Troncy, and on view through December 16, 2023, “The Echo of Picasso” examines dual perspectives on Picasso’s legacy: the first revisits the art historical period wherein the artist’s contemporaries challenged his work, and the second from the point of view of today’s living artists whose work “echoes” Picasso’s oeuvre. The exhibition includes examples of rare works by Picasso, such as Glass of Absinthe (1914), which is one of only six extant sculptures and on loan from Fundación Almine y Bernard Ruiz-Picasso, and contemporary masters, including works by Willem de Kooning, Jeff Koons, David Hockney, Urs Fischer, and more.
