Timely Information

This will be a great way to get information out to the members without having to wait for a meeting or a newsletter. Those are still valuable tools but when the information is more time dependent, it is good to have another outlet.

With that in mind, I want to let you all know about a very interesting exhibit at the Clark Museum in Williamstown. The Clark is a terrific museum located in the Berkshires of Western Mass. It is loaded with works of the Impressionists and many American and European masters. Their main exhibit this summer is Picasso Looks at Degas. It runs until September 12, 2010.

This is a very interesting exhibit. It shows a number of Degas' works of various subject matter such as cafe life, the theater, women bathing, etc. Juxtaposed with many of these works are Picasso's take on the same subject. Although Degas was much older than Picasso, they both lived in Paris at the same time at one point during their careers. Picasso would have seen many of Degas' paintings and may have been impressed or influenced by them.

The time frame of the exhibit covers many years of Picasso's life and artistic styles. It was fun to see the development of Picasso's style as he copied some of the works of Degas. Picasso did say, after all, "Good artists copy, great artists steal". You can see how he followed his own advice at this fascinating exhibit.
