NOW ON DISPLAY:
White Gallery: Picasso – Matisse – Chagall
Sept 19 - Jan 11, 2015
Celebrate the most important artists of the 20th century with Picasso-Matisse-Chagall, an exhibition of prints. An opening reception for Arts Center members will be held September 18. The exhibit opens to the public on September 19.
Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, and Marc Chagall were among the trailblazers of their time, an era defined by artistic leaps in freedom from academia constraints. This private collection reinforces the sense of time that was 1920’s Paris and creates for the eye a feast of line play and compositional delight. Visitors to the exhibition will explore the imagery of expansive subjects ranging from the human body to family members and the Bible in a collection of lithographs, etchings, linocuts, and ceramics by these renowned artists. “This exhibit has not been seen by the public in over eight years,” says Liz Szabo, visual arts curator of the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center. “Pueblo is fortunate to have something so spectacular within their reach.”

On any given day, I may begin work with a large brush in loose transparent washes, and an hour later, I will be using a smaller brush doing very linear details in my landscapes.”
