Richard Prince – Paintings


In line with much of Prince’s art, the paintings grapple with the idea of influence, reusing and deconstructing Picasso’s iconography in order to mount a challenge to his iconic aura. In the late 2000s, Prince began a cycle of paintings which similarly corrupted Willem de Kooning’s ‘Women’ series – conflating the originals with pornographic ink-jet prints and sections of expressive, ‘painterly’ brushwork. In the Picasso paintings, Prince takes on the most pervasive influence of all on twentieth-century art (Jackson Pollock, another significant inspiration of Prince’s, famously hurled a Picasso book against his studio wall, and emerged saying: “Goddamn it! That guy has done everything. There’s nothing left.”)
