April 17 – Picasso and American Art

On Tuesday, April 17, Michael FitzGerald, Associate Professor of Fine Art – Trinity College, will discuss the recent, celebrated exhibition that he curated at the Whitney Museum. In this talk, he will explore Picasso’s varied and far-reaching impact on 20th Century American artists.
A landmark exhibition, ten years in the planning, Picasso and American Art celebrates Picasso’s dramatic impact on the course of 20th Century American art. Although Picasso never set foot in America, many of this country’s most important artists saw him as the central figure of modern art and defined their own achievements through their absorption or critique of his example.
This exhibition has recently traveled to San Francisco, where it will be on display at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art until May 28, 2007.
