On Monday night I was lucky enough to attend the opening of the Picasso exhibit at the Frick. The Frick is one of my favorite museums in New York and the exhibition was outrageously fabulous. “Picasso’s Drawings, 1890-1921: Reinventing Tradition” follows his work over three decades and with only 61 works on display it was an enjoyable and easy way to see Picasso.
Some of my favorite’s:
This one blew my mind. They had a drawing Picasso did when he was 8 or 9 years old. Hercules 1890 below:
Portrait of the Artist’s Father 1896 is below. Done only 6 years after the drawing above. His talent grew incredibly- amazing.
Sorry about the size of the image… I loved this one in person, the colors and mixed media gave it such a wonderful feel. Portrait of Antoni Sabates 1899:
Seating nude and Standing Nude 1906 is below.
Yellow Nude 1907 below:
Still Life with Chocolate Pot below. 1909
