Yesterday E. and I caught the special show of sculptures by Picasso at the Modern. There was lots to fall in love with here, and below are a few camera phone shots.
The genius of this show is it’s focus, or foci. Each of the 11 rooms centers on one location in the artist’s career, and one particular sculptural material. Starting with bronze, then through plaster, found objects, ceramics and sheet metal, Picasso’s sculptural art was predicated on what was available where he lived. A bronze foundry, a sheet metal fabricator, a junkyard. Each he took full advantage of.
Now through February 7, 2016. You have to have a ticket for a predetermined time slot, so order on-line.
