Picasso Exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Today I had the great joy of visiting the Metropolitan Museum of art to see the exhibition of art by the world's most famous artist Pablo Picasso. I am glad that the exhibition was created as the genius and talent of Pablo Picasso can now be seen and enjoyed by a younger generation. The exhibition was excellent and I was able to walk around and enjoy all the beautiful art that Picasso created throughout his life. Picasso worked in every medium imaginable and experimented with different forms of art. The quality of each work is tremendous and leaves us knowing that all the praise he receives is well deserved. My favorite paintings were "The Dreamer" and "Dora Maar in Arm Chair" I was also glad to see the portrait of Gertrude Stein as it was very powerful and direct. Every room I entered left me in awe because Picasso mastered every medium, style or design that he created. From the lino-cuts, ceramic plaques, bronze sculptures, paintings, pastels, prints, drawings etc the collection is just magnificent.
If you live in or near New York City you should make every effort to visit this great exhibition as you will not be disappointed. The Museum also has a book "PICASSO In The Metropolitan Museum of Art" at $35 for soft cover and $60 for hard cover and I was glad I purchased a soft cover edition as it has great pictures inside of the works in the exhibition and also behind the scene pictures of collectors homes, studio shots etc. I am glad I took the time to visit this exhibition and view these masterpieces created by Pablo Picasso a Hispanic Artist who has given me such motivation and inspiration because of the art that he created. Picasso will always be #1 and this exhibition clearly shows us why.
Special Thanks to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Foundation, Bloomberg, and all the collectors that have donated these fine works to the Museum throughout the years. I would also like to thank Photographer Arnold Newman for the beautiful pictures of Pablo Picasso that he took throughout his lifetime such as the one that I use in this Blog.
