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.

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.
