Picasso and the Avant-Garde in Paris
Self-Portrait with Palette, Pablo Picasso, 1906
Three Musicians, Pablo Picasso, 1921
On Friday I enjoyed the new exhibit "Picasso and the Avant-Garde in Paris", showcasing Picasso's work between 1905 and 1945 and the artists he influenced. I learned about the history and development of Cubism and later Surrealism, the cultural influences, the major artists, the philosophy behind the art, and of course the contribution of Pablo Picasso. The exhibit was well designed and informative. It runs at the Philadelphia Museum of Art until April 25, 2010, so if you're in the area, make sure you get a ticket to see this beautiful exhibit.
