  11. Remembering Picasso

    "Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life." - Pablo Picasso

    One of the most prominent and innovative artists of the 20th century, Pablo Picasso was born on this day in 1881 in Málaga, Spain. 

    Held in the highest regard during his lifetime, he is celebrated for his lengthy and prolific career working in several modernist idioms, as well as for co-founding Cubism. In 1973, Picasso died in Mougins, at 92 years old, and is renowned today as one of the pioneering and most influential forces of 20th-century modernism.

  14. Remembering Giacometti

    "I paint and sculpt to get a grip on reality… to protect myself." 

    Alberto Giacometti was born on this day in 1901 in Borgonovo, Switzerland. In explaining his work, the artist once said that he rendered people the way he believed they ought to be seen by others. 

    Though his artwork is uneasily categorized, Giacometti was among the most influential of all Modern artists, creating expressive paintings, sculptures, and lyrical drawings which continue to inspire artists and collectors alike.

  16. Maja Negra

    In Spanish, a "Maja" is a flashy young woman who is a flirt.

    This enormous etching by Modern master Joan Miró certainly has flair- measuring over four feet in length. The arcs are reminiscent of Miro’s famous Moon Bird Sculpture that sits in the the garden of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
