Opening Lecture: Picasso’s Creative Collaborations

This talk by Manton Curator of Prints, Drawings, and Sculpture Jay A. Clarke investigates how Picasso’s creative collaborations fueled and strengthened his art.

We often think of Pablo Picasso as the ultimate artist genius, working alone in his studio, but he did not create in a vacuum. For example, the artist worked frequently with the printers who pulled the images off his copper plates, foundries that cast his bronzes, publishers who commissioned and sold his prints and bronzes, and ceramicists who threw the pots he later completed. In addition, the many muses in his life greatly impacted his production, imagery, and artistic reputation.
