Picas­so was a nar­cis­sis­tic, manip­u­la­tive sex addict, who went through women like paint brush­es and played them off one anoth­er for sport… See­ing a paint­ing of him sort­ing laun­dry sat­is­fies that same mali­cious itch as watch­ing Mike Tyson get­ting wal­loped in the ring.

In the new book Domes­tic Picas­so, Eric Ross­er simul­ta­ne­ous­ly salutes and gives the mid­dle fin­ger to one of the great­est artists of all time, both hon­our­ing Pablo Picasso’s con­tri­bu­tion to cul­ture and remind­ing read­ers of the man’s noto­ri­ous­ly misog­y­nis­tic views.

Play­ing off famous Picas­so paint­ings and icon­ic pho­tographs of the artist, Rosser’s images—available in a sump­tu­ous­ly designed book with a fore­ward by crit­ic John Bent­ley Mays that will be on sale at the exhibition—show, among oth­er poignant moments, Picas­so chang­ing dia­pers, help­ing neigh­bour ladies hang drapes, tak­ing out the trash and won­der­ing what to cook for din­ner. What valu­able life lessons the man him­self missed out on.
