Celebrating the Heart Strings of Picasso – MoMA Style…

Renowned NYC Museum MoMA is hosting a show dedicated to none other than Picasso – showcasing a special gift predominantly for the Museum – Picasso Cardboard Guitars.

The pieces was made sometime between October and December 1912, cobbled together from cardboard, paper, string and wire. Cleverly cut, folded, threaded and glued. The silent instrument resembled a uniqlo look in sculptured art.

In 1914 he reiterated his delicately composed papery in a more stable and durable metal formation. Both guitars were made personal gifts from the artist to MoMA.

These pieces represent a a breakthrough moment in 20th Century art, and a significant time for the guitars’ place within it.

 

 

Accompanied by an array of 70 closely connected collages, drawings, constructions and photographs – collected from over 30 public and private collections the world round, this is promising to be an exciting exhibition indeed, offering a fresh insight in to the world of Picasso‘s cross over process in art.
