Picasso famously dismissed British art as 'sweet and pretty', but his closer relationship to, and higher regard for certain British artists tells another more nuanced story. What role have these relationships played in shaping modern visual culture as we know it? Where would British modernism be without Picasso? A panel of art historians and writers: Andrew Brighton, Rachel Flynn and Paul Edwards chaired by Joe Kerr discuss and debate the importance of Picasso's mutually inspirational relationships with Francis Bacon, Graham Sutherland and Wyndham Lewis.
