BLANTON MUSUEM OF ART PRESENTS PICASSO: A GRAPHIC INQUIRY
Picasso: A Graphic Inquiry is currently running through August 1, 2010 at The Blanton Musuem of Art. The exhibition highlights seventeen significant graphic works, including the lithographic Head of a Woman (1925), four works from the acclaimed Suite Vollard (1930-1937), including the Blind Minotaur Guided by a Young Girl in the Night and Bust in Profile (1957), one of many images he created of his young wife Jacqueline Roque.
Jonathan Bober, Blanton curator of European Art states “The Blanton’s holdings of Picasso’s prints represent the artist’s tremendous range, and a number of works––like the Tête de femme of 1925, The Blind Minotaur, and the Buste de profil––are among his most important.”
In accompaniment to this exhibit, the Austin Playhouse is presenting “Picasso at the Lapin Agile” by Steve Martin through May 2, 2010.
A comedy set in 1904, the play presents the moment in time when Einstein and Picasso were both on the verge of executing tremendous genius. The play attempts to explain in a light-hearted way, the similarity of the creative process involved with great leaps of imagination in art and science, set against the backdrop of the famous cabaret bar in Montmartre, Paris.
