'Picasso and Modern British Art' comes to Edinburgh following a successful season at Tate Britain.

David Hockney is not the only British artist to develop a Picasso obsession. A century ago, the Spanish artist had a coterie of British fans: Roger Fry was showing his works in London and Clive Bell was hailing him as 'one of the most inventive minds in Europe' and 'a master of the modern movement'.Picasso also had a huge impact on the leading artists who evolved a particularly British form of Modernism. Duncan Grant, Wyndham Lewis, Ben Nicholson, Henry Moore, Francis Bacon and Graham Sutherland all responded to Picasso's images in various ways, while some in the British art establishment, such as Alfred Munnings, thundered against Picasso's 'damned nonsense'.
