In partnership with the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, the Columbia Club of Northern California, and the Columbia Club of Southern California, we invite you to join us for our art talk and explore the relationship between two legends of 20th century art. Best known for his graceful modernist mobiles, American Alexander Calder brought movement to sculpture through his ever-evolving artwork. Spanish artist Pablo Picasso created deeply personal work that alternated between realism and abstraction. By juxtaposing works dating from the 1920s to the 1970s, this presentation will examine the parallels between Calder and Picasso’s works while also looking at the unique qualities that make each artist distinctive. Don’t miss this insightful and thought-provoking visual conversation between two innovative artists who redefined modernism.
