This week in Art:
MoMA - Picasso: Guitars 1912 - 1914
In 1912 Picasso created a guitar from cardboard, paper, string, and wire. He cut, folded, threaded, and glued the piece together. The design of the piece holds true to Picasso's style of cubism. The sculpture was re-created by Picasso in 1914 in a more durable form using sheet metal.
Through June 6, both sculptures of Picasso's silent guitar will be on display at MoMA as part of the exhibit, Picasso: Guitars 1912 - 1914.
The show encompasses 70 collages, constructions, drawings, paintings, and photographs assembled from over 30 public and private collections worldwide.
