Picasso Oh Oh Oh so much better than the others

There's nothing quite so flattering as imitation, but some of painters 'influenced' by Picasso - as juxtaposed with his works at the new Tate Britain exhibition - merely mimicked this genius including Henry Moore and the Bloomsbury group of artists.  Hockney's homage to Picasso was tongue in cheek whilst the influence Picasso had on Bacon was a revelation.  The Tate has used this exhibition as an excuse to drag all the unhung pictures (the Bloomsbury group not the Picassos) out of the basement and put them on show - but nontheless worth a visit to remind oneself of Picasso's genius.
