Dear Art Educators,

Some of you may enjoy this web presentation from San Francisco Museum
of Modern Art....(featured in Scout Report). Good Art/Science

16. A Hidden Picasso [Macromedia Flash Player]

This short web feature from SFMOMA (the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art)
shows how art conservators discovered a nightclub scene that 19-year-old
Pablo Picasso had painted over completely, transforming the painting into a
street scene. Conservator Will Shank believes that Picasso may have done
this because the artist thought the street scene would be easier to sell. In
a video at the web site, Shank points out that Picasso returned to the
nightclub theme in later paintings, further justifying his obliterating this
early example. The web feature also includes archival photographs and
drawings by the young artist, and views of Paris in 1900.
