In October Apollinaire brought Georges Braque to Picasso’s studio in the Bateau-Lavoir, and thus began the friendship that was also Cubism. This was the year, too, of the large Cézanne retrospective at the Salon d’Automne – that painter so massively important to Picasso and Braque. As Picasso said in his conversations with Brassai, ‘Cézanne was my one and only master. It was the same with all of us – he was like our father. ’7 And Cézanne’s Five Bathers (1890–91; Hermitage, St Petersburg) stand quite clearly behind these Demoiselles.
It was Derain who had urged Picasso to visit the Ethnographical Museum, which occasioned Picasso’s crucial confrontation with African art, about which he had his ‘revelation’, realizing that it was not just art but exorcism. It is an interesting sidelight on the Picasso / Derain relationship that Alice Gery, who would in the course of time marry Derain, had been Picasso’s mistress, and that it was Picasso who had arranged for her to meet Derain at a lunch he organized. ) In the subsequent years, even after his incredibly close work with Braque, Picasso would see as much of Derain as of Braque, admiring him for his eclecticism, probably finding it much like his own.

As he wrote to Jacques Doucet in 1917, at Doucet’s request to him to write on his painter friend, ‘I haven’t written anything on Picasso. 41 In those grand young years there were so many major happenings that they could scarcely be recounted. In their spirit, ‘la bande à Picasso’ remained grouped around that place in which they had all been so poor and so happy, the Bateau-Lavoir.
