Art History Reports: The Bulls of Picasso

Bechtler Museum

Went to the Bechtler Museum to look at Picasso’s prints of bulls, pottery, and scenes adapted from an Honor de Balzac book.  In comparison to the blockbuster shows one sees at the High Museum, this  exhibition makes for a small show they confined to one room.  On the bulls, the Toro prints have this very Japanese feel with its dark opaque shapes and light lines.  Other prints show scenes of dancing nude women while old women look at them.  An interesting study of contrasts.  On the pottery, it left me ambivalent.
