A giant head by Pablo Picasso, in a comics' version, is perched on a striped sweater. In 1998, during a project for the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Maurizio Cattelan staged an actor dressed in this outfit to welcome visitors.

The work Untitled is a relic of this performance. It equates an icon of modern art to an icon of popular art - Mickey Mouse - and the museum to an amusement park. Showing tremendous ingenuity in creating funny situations, the Italian artist gives a biting look at the art world and its tendency to make certain artists sacred. We find with this doll as imposing as grotesque the taste of Cattelan to divert figures known to all.

Untitled was first shown by the Pinault Collection in 2006 during the "Post-Pop" exhibition at Palazzo Grassi.
