Freed Lecture “Braque and Picasso: A Continuing Dialogue”

Sunday, Feb 16, 2014
2 p.m. - 3 p.m.

Law Building, Lower Level
1001 Bissonnet Map & Directions


Presented by Pepe Karmel, associate professor of art history, New York University.

This year, the Freed Lecture series presents four free lectures related to the exhibition Georges Braque: A Retrospective.

Renowned art historian, curator, and critic Pepe Karmel discusses the relationship between Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso, co-inventors of Cubism. It is generally believed that their artistic dialogue came to an end with the outbreak of World War I in 1914. But in fact, Braque's productive relationship with Picasso continued well into the 1920s, exercising an important influence on the development of Modern art over many decades. A reception and exhibition viewing follow the lecture.

This lecture is free with Museum admission. Reserve your seat in advance! Use the "Get Tickets" button and print at home; call 713.639.7771; or visit any MFAH admissions desk.
