This summer, Columbus Museum of Art, in partnership with the Barnes Foundation, will present Picasso: The Great War, Experimentation and Change. In advance of the exhibition’s opening on June 10, the next Art Book Club features Madame Picasso by Anne Girard, which brings to life the untold story of Eva Gouel, the mistress and great love of the artist. Join Nannette Maciejunes, Executive Director of CMA, and the author, who will join the discussion via Skype. You can attend either June 2 at 7 p.m. or June 5 at 2 p.m. Registration is available here.
The exhibit itself runs from June 10 - September 11, featuring 50 works drawn from museums and private collections from around the world. Come explore how Picasso’s work was impacted by World War I, when he began experimenting with both cubist and classical modes. In addition to the works by Picasso, there will be work from Picasso contemporaries including Matisse, Modigliani and Rivera.
There is an up-charge to take in this exhibit if you are not a member of the Museum. So plan to spend an extra $1 (K - 12 students), $3 (seniors and college students) or $6 (adults), or do the smart thing and become a member.
