see this…

if a man walked up to you on the street and said, “you have an interesting face. i would like to do your portrait.” would you walk away, or would you be game?  in 1927 Paris, a young woman named Marie-Thérèse said, “why not?”

the man was Picasso.

leaving my storage unit on west 21st street the other day, i noticed a sign for the exhibit Picasso and Marie-Thérèse: L’amour fou at the Gagosian Gallery. trust me, it’s worth ducking in. the gallery space is lovely, and the real treat is that while i’ve seen many of Picasso’s well-known works, i don’t think i’d ever seen any of these. perhaps they’d be new to you, too?

view the exhibit here.
