Radical Form, Traditional Subject: Picasso/Rivera and the Cubist Still Life

Nicole Atzbach, Curator, Meadows Museum

Atzbach discusses the works featured in the Meadows Museum exhibition Picasso/Rivera: Still Life and the Precedence of Form and examines the sources for the imagery that both artists were using. While their mode of expression was radical, the subject matter engaged by Picasso and Rivera was steeped in art historical traditions of landscape, still life and the theme of painting as an illusionistic window onto the world. The lecture will elucidate the relationship of these two artists and study the dialogue of shared visual language between them around 1914-15.
