Picasso & American Art

I went to the Picasso & American Art exhibit at SFMOMA today. It's a wonderful exhibit. It even includes what the experts believe to be the first Picasso painting brought to the U.S. by Max Weber. Even though Picasso never stepped foot in the U.S., his work was extremely influential on many American artists including Weber, de Kooning, Gorky, Lichtenstein, Pollack and others. The exhibit closes on Monday, May 28th. Go now before the crowds get even worse, and make sure you spring for the $2 audio guide.
