Is Joe Bradley the Heir to Picasso?
Is Joe Bradley the Heir to Picasso? A Solo Show at the Cubist’s Chateau Makes the Case He Is
“Picasso incorporated found objects in a large number of his sculptures, it is one of his many inventions,” Ruiz-Picasso explained. “Bradley’s sculptures are also based on found objects, and then cast in bronze and painted. But the way Joe Bradley chooses his found objects is totally different from the way Picasso did. Bradley finds objects that in a way already exist in his work and in his drawings or paintings.”
Bradley will be the main event, but to mark the occasion, sculptures by contemporary artists Dan Brown, Jeff Koons, Richard Prince, and Julian Schnabel will be installed in the surrounding park. Photos and film material from Olga Ruiz-Picasso’s archive will be on view in the estate’s dovecote and church.
