PICASSO EXHIBIT AT KUNSTHAUS ZÜRICH

The exhibition at Kunsthaus Zürich opens with art by the young Picasso, under the influence of Gauguin, van Gogh and the Old Masters. Inspired by the work of Toulouse-Lautrec and his initial sojourns in Paris, Picasso produced some colourful scenes of big city life, without yet demonstrating an independent style.

Included in the show are a few pieces from his Blue and Pink Periods, a time when Picasso began to paint using mainly blue-green and blue-violet shades, in moody works expressive of melancholy and depression, which began in 1901.

Girl in a Chemise ca. 1905

Together with George Braque, Picasso developed the entirely new visual language of Cubism at the end of the first decade of the new century, and his interest in the style was accordingly great. The current exhibition presents Picasso’s Cubism by dividing his work between 1907 and 1920 into three phases: the analytical, the synthetic, and the Late Cubist.

The exhibit is currently on show and runs through January 30, 2011.
