DÉJEUNER SUR L’HERBE, 1962
Narrator: Déjeuner sur l’herbe was produced by the Norwegian artist Carl Nesjar based on Picasso’s cardboard models. It has the same title as a famous work from 1861–63 by the French painter Édouard Manet. In the course of his career, Picasso made several works inspired by the paintings of other artists. In Manet’s painting, the men are well-dressed upper-class individuals, while the woman is naked. In Picasso’s version, the breakfast-eaters are all nude bathers without any bourgeois clothes.
