Presented by Gary Tinterow, director of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston
Few artists have exerted as considerable an influence over subsequent generations as Pablo Picasso. Widely considered the most important artist of the 20th century, Picasso created a formidable body of work over more than six decades. Despite the number of exhibitions that have been mounted, and how much has been written about the artist’s work, Picasso never ceases to amaze and delight both viewers and scholars. Picasso Black and White is the first major exhibition to focus on a little-known aspect: Picasso's lifelong exploration of a black-and-white palette, whether in paintings, sculpture, or drawing.
In this richly illustrated lecture, Gary Tinterow talks about how the exhibition demonstrates that Picasso’s persistent return to black, white, and gray was the means by which the artist continuously investigated and reinvented the structure of compositions.
