Scotch Egg Picasso by Yol

The thing that has always struck me since I first encountered Picasso’s Demoiselles d’Avignon, about 25 years ago, was the relationships it posits between the fields of Western and African art and culture. While potentially the creation of the work could have raised all sorts of questions about the role and function of art in different societies and so on, Picasso’s masterly PR and marketing machine meant that he remained the focus of the ensuing discussions in art history and criticim for the rest of the century.

This is Yol’s interpretation using a Scotch egg, baked potato and baked beans. The willow pattern plate is a nice touch.
