Why would a painter choose to portray the world in black-and-white if he had all the most vibrant colors at his disposal? Because he’s Pablo Picasso, that’s why. The Guggenheim’s new exhibition Picasso Black and White takes a look at the Spanish artist’s least colorful work from 1904 to 1971 through 118 paintings, sculptures, and works on paper. Aside from his exemplary uses of isolated black, white, and gray hues, this exhibition also includes his early monochromatic blue and rose paintings, gray-toned Cubist canvases, and neoclassical portraits and nudes.
Mondays-Sundays, 10 a.m. Starts: Oct. 5. Continues through Jan. 23, 2012
