Daddy, what did you paint in the war?

"It's one of those questions one is not supposed to raise in France, like so many others concerning that period. But what did happen in the art world during the occupation? Resistance, collaboration or cautious withdrawal? To simplify matters, one might say there was one painter for each stance: Picasso joined the Resistance, Derain collaborated and Matisse kept a low profile. Others such as Breton, Duchamp, Ernst, Léger, Masson or Mondrian sought exile in New York.

 

L'Art en Guerre, France 1938-47 is at Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, France, until 17 February"

Major exhibition offers unprecedented examination of Picasso's black-and-white palette | Art History & Literary Studies | Scoop.it

"NEW YORK, NY.- Picasso Black and White, the first major exhibition to focus on the artist’s lifelong exploration of a black-and-white palette throughout his prolific career, is being presented at the Guggenheim Museum from October 5, 2012, to January 23, 2013. The exhibition features 118 paintings, sculptures, and works on paper from 1904 to 1971, and offers new and striking insights into Pablo Picasso’s vision and working methods. This chronological presentation comprises significant loans drawn from private and public collections across Europe and the United States, five of which have never before exhibited or published, including works from the Picasso family and other lenders that are on public view for the first time. Thirty-eight of these artworks are having their first U.S. presentation."
