Picasso Black and White - Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
Add to Calendar 05-10-2012 23-01-2013 15 Picasso Black and White Picasso Black and White marks the first major exhibition to focus on the recurrent motif of black and white throughout Pablo Picasso's career. Surveying his oeuvre from 1904 to 1971, Picasso Black and White examines the artist's lifelong exploration of a black-and-white palette through approximately 115 paintings and a selection of sculptures and works on paper. The exhibition thematically traces the artist's unique vision throughout his work, including early monochromatic blue and rose paintings, gray-toned Cubist canvases, elegant and austere neoclassical portraits and nudes, Surrealist-inspired figures, forceful and somber scenes depicting the atrocities of war, allegorical still lifes, vivid interpretations of art-historical masterpieces, and the electric, highly sexualized canvases of Picasso's last years. The exhibition includes significant loans drawn from private collections, including many from the Picasso family; from museums across Europe and the United States; and from numerous public and private European and American collections, many of which have not been exhibited or published before. The exhibition is organized by Carmen Gimenez, Stephen and Nan Swid Curator of Twentieth-Century Art, with assistance from Karole Vail, Associate Curator, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Picasso Black and White is sponsored by Bank of America. Major support is provided by the Picasso Black and White Leadership Committee, with Christina and Robert C. Baker, Chairs; Acquavella Galleries; J. Ira and Nicki Harris Foundation; The Lauder Foundation-Leonard and Evelyn Lauder Fund; Phyllis and William Mack; Stephen and Nan Swid; and Aaron I. Fleischman and Lin Lougheed. Additional support is provided by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation, and the Juliet Lea Hillman Simonds Foundation. This exhibition is supported by an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=113331 Solomon R.
