Ah, if only I had a magic carpet. The Barnes Foundation has a new exhibition, "Picasso: The Great War, Experimentation and Change". Sadly, I cannot simply travel to the USA!
I have always been interested in Picasso because when I first saw his work it seemed so strange. It wasn't until I visited the Musée Picasso in Paris that I got a real feel for him in his context.
As we have discussed before, art works survive because of their continued resonance. In this context, the Musée Picasso had the biggest impact on youngest.
Mind you, it had a bigger impact on youngest. She just wandered absorbed.
Are you a Picasso fan?
Staying with the girls, eldest has decided that she is an extroverted introvert. I think that's pretty right. Her father is too.
When I drop into performance mode, I can appear quite extroverted. When I'm happy, I can appear extroverted. However, these are to some degree and especially the performance mode learned behaviours.
What personality type are you? Do they in fact make sense? - I clearly think that they do. How have you modified your behaviour?
Growing up, I did not regard photography as art. I really didn't until I started visiting the Australian National Gallery on a regular basis looking at their photographic exhibitions. Now I regard photography as both an art form and evidence to be used in my research and writing.
I see that the The Morgan Library & Museum has opened a new exhibition exploring the diverse visual languages of photography. Again, I wish that I could go! It's worth clicking on the link because of its descriptions of the changing role of photography.
As always, in responding feel free to go in whatever direction you want.
