Theorizes that Picasso's use of appropriation is usually associated exclusively with his borrowings from the history of art, especially his later variations after such famous works as Delacroix's `The Women of Algiers' (1954-55), Velazquez's `LasMeninas' (1957), and Manet's `Dejeuner sur l'herbe' (1959-62). Picasso's perception of appropriation as a magical transference of power that could be applied to both historical and contemporary art; Early beginnings of Picasso's use of appropriation; Deaths of his sister Conchita and poet friend Carles Casagemas and how they affected his art; Use of appropriation to exorcise the forces of death and impotence through his art; Picasso as archetype.
