Reinventing Portraiture: Picasso in the 1930s and 1940s
Friday, February 14, 2014, 1:30 p.m.
The Estée and Joseph H. Lauder Painting and Sculpture Gallery, Gallery 11, fifth floor
Explore Picasso’s modernist notion of portraiture in his painting and sculpture, and the way his art reflected his personal life and world crises. How would you reinvent portraiture for our time? Visitors will have the opportunity to draw a portrait or self-portrait.
Gallery Sessions, impromptu interactions facilitated by Museum educators that explore the creative process, art history, and the experience of art, take place daily in select galleries. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free with Museum admission. No registration is required.
Sign language–interpreted Gallery Sessions are held every fourth Sunday of the month at 1:30 p.m. FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
