Dear Art Educators,

Many of you do units on Picasso.... You might want to include some
images of American art in your PowerPoint - showing how artists
borrowed from Picasso.

on view September 28, 2006-January 28, 2007
"This groundbreaking exhibition examines the fundamental role that
Pablo Picasso played in the development of American art during the
last century. The extremely diverse group of American artists, whose
works are juxtaposed with Picasso's, include Max Weber, Stuart Davis,
Arshile Gorky, John Graham, Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollock, David
Smith, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, and Jasper Johns. The exhibition
will travel to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Walker
Art Center in Minneapolis."
(copied from Whitney site)

New York Times has a slide show that shows several works side by side.

Everybody Loves Pablo
By MICHAEL KIMMELMAN

Kimmelman was not impressed with the exhibit.... he found it "dull"
It is worth it ti sign up for FREE New York Times just to get the
slide show of images - Four side by side comparisons.

There is a catalog available of the exhibit.
