Last Friday, I spent the afternoon in the Upper East Side at The Guggenheim Museum to check out Picasso Black and White, a special exhibit exploring a distinct category of Pablo Picasso‘s works. The first of its kind, this collection of pieces is made up exclusively of [black and white] artwork that takes us back to some of the most impactful moments of his career, as well as some of the more intimate parts of his life.
Picasso Black and White exposes the audience to an abundance of interesting facts and stories about this iconic artist’s personal life, his take on the world of art, and the inspiration behind some of his greatest creations. Since I couldn’t take pictures throughout the exhibit, I’m really considering buying the exhibition catalogue from the Guggenheim Online Store. It contains all of the works featured in the exhibit, as well as tons of additional information on Picasso and his impact on art history. If you’re in the New York City area, definitely check it out before it ends on January 23rd. It’s a must-see for any art fan.
And for those of you living outside of the city, get your hands on a copy of the Picasso Black and White exhibition catalogue. It’s not quite the same as being there in person, but you’ll definitely get the picture.
