Through the Eyes of Picasso

Through the Eyes of Picasso

Some people are pure, creative geniuses. Picasso was definitely one of them. Spending Saturday seeing Through the Eyes of Picasso at The Nelson Atkins Museum of Art was like getting a glimpse into Picasso's world. I think that's why I like spending time in museums so much; it is like being transported into other worlds.

Picasso's relationships and personal life took many twists and turns. What is going on in his life at that period of time rubs off on his artwork. He was still a vibrant artist at the age of 91. He created a huge amount of artwork throughout his long and complicated life.

Picasso was greatly influenced by African and Oceanic art. He amassed an amazing collection of it himself. One of the most interesting things about this exhibit is how Picasso's art is shown along side pieces from his collection or similar pieces that he might have been inspired by. Picasso was considered one of the founders modern art in the 20th century. I find it ironic that the development of modern art in Europe was strongly influenced by very primitive art from a completely different culture.

The photographs of Picasso and his studio show the genius at work. If you get a chance, you should go see this exhibit! It is on display through April 8th.
