Picasso and the Avant-Garde in Paris
Philadelphia Museum of Art
February 24, 2010 - April 25, 2010
Internationally recognized as one of the most innovative and influential artists of the twentieth century, Pablo Picasso (Spanish, 1881–1973) was at his most ferociously inventive between 1905 and 1945. Picasso and the Avant-Garde in Paris surveys his work during these crucial decades, when he transformed the history of art through his innate virtuosity and protean creativity.
It will be interesting to see if this exhibit touches on the influence that Cubist painting had on the development of modern photographic style. I know the exhibit will include photographs of the Avant-Garde artists taken by Man Ray, I just hope that there is some mention of the corresponding changes that took place in photography during this period.
