T. J. Clark – Picasso and Truth: From Cubism to Guernica

Saturday 18 May 2013, 15:00 to 16:00

T. J. Clark’s Picasso and Truth offers a breathtaking and original new look at the most significant artist of the modern era.

From Pablo Picasso’s early The Blue Room to the later Guernica, the art historian offers a striking reassessment of the artist’s paintings from the 1920s and 1930s. Clark explores Picasso’s answer to Nietzsche’s belief that the age-old commitment to truth was imploding in modern European culture and rescues Picasso from the celebrity culture that trivialises his accomplishments and returning us to the tragic vision of his art – humane and appalling, naïve and difficult, in mourning for a lost nineteenth century, yet utterly exposed to the hell of Europe between the wars.
