Too bad this exhibit is not on view longer... reminds us that not only was Picasso obsessed with the "human" form and function, but HIS own as well.


A very nicely written article on an important artist. To be contrary, I question whether late Picasso is important? Given that Picasso is considered a master who has a tremendous talent for beautiful paint handling, but does self-referencing with a practiced hand reach a sustainable level of significance?


I wonder if "significance" is important when the richness of the image and the boldness of the colors is so appealing. It seems that Picasso's late work focuses on a wealth of color and texture - an abundance of living in a bold and perhaps strident manner - that must have been at odds with his diminishing physical prowess.
