So many Exhibitions, So Little Time

Recommended Posts

I’ve been working through my collection of art books, as another way of filling time. Of course, it makes me miss galleries, because while some beautifully produced catalogs really are a credible substitute for seeing works (Auerbach, for example), many aren’t.

Anyway, I have this hefty two volume Picasso which I’ve never thumbed through from beginning to end before. The effect of doing so is absolutely overwhelming. There are the famous works, sure, but there are hundreds of works one barely remembers or hasn’t seen which would be the masterpiece of any other modern artist.

This was one of those, oh he really was that good experiences.

Yes, and just a bit prolific as well.

And it's not just painting. He worked in so many different mediums - there was a small show of his linocuts at the Met that was delightful. And then there are his sculptures...
