Picasso: Blue and Rose
Picasso was one of those artists that could shift and adapt to different styles like an artistic chameleon. His catalogue of works covers a range of different periods and approaches. They are so diverse and at odds from each other that those less familiar with his work might be surprised at what they see. For example, his more naive work is far more playful than the harsh Cubist pieces.
One era that might also catch people is the Blue and Rose era. If you were to take someone with minimal knowledge of art to the Musee d'Orsay to see Picasso: Blue and Rose but did not tell them the artist, they might not know it was Picasso right away. But, there is still something striking about the work and the pieces in the exhibition are sure to leave a lasting impression.
This exhibition – from September 18th to January 6th – is a great opportunity to see the man’s work from another angle. Don’t miss out.
