The Wandering Yankee – Picasso exhibit

When we think of art in the twentieth century Picasso quickly filters to the top of our minds.  His work throughout his career is known throughout the western world, from his cubist period to Guernica, to his later post war work, it permeates our minds and dreams.  As Americans we have seen is work in art classes and mimicked in cartoons, yet I had not had a chance to see more than one or perhaps two pieces before.  The Museum of Fine Arts Houston’s current exhibit has dozens from throughout his life, including sketches for Guernica (the original of course will never leave Spain) and his work Charnel House painted at the height of the second world war and depicting the suffering of Europe under Nazi occupation.  If life brings you to Houston in the next few months be sure to get to the Museum of Fine Arts and see this exhibit.
