The Triumph of Pan: Picasso in Occupied France
Monday, April 8 | 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
How did Picasso, a known anti-fascist, not only survive but manage to produce art? Several of Picasso’s fellow artists and intellectuals also decided to stay in France. What were their circumstances and what happened to them?
Why did they remain in France under great personal risk?
We will examine these questions as well as review Picasso’s work from the war years.
It will be a fascinating look at this dark chapter in Picasso’s life.
