“It’s all summed up by a picture of Picasso (included in the catalog, but for some reason not in the exhibit) in which he is photographed being photographed: in a 1956 shot by André Villers, we glimpse the artist in his garden, dressed in white like a secular pope, as Paul Strand takes his picture—for surely the most important activity of a celebrity is to be photographed, if possible by a celebrated photographer.” Barry Schwabsky • The Nation
