DESCRIPTION

The Santa Barbara Museum of Art and the Kimbell Art Museum, Fort Worth are co-organizers of this intimately scaled exhibition, featuring approximately 15 paintings and 25 prints conceived by Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso during one of the most prolific and intensely experimental exchanges in the history of art.

This presentation is the first to dwell on a selection of the paintings, as well as nearly all of the prints produced during these two critical years, to demonstrate the visual point and counterpoint that fed into the invention of the revolutionary art form now known as Analytic Cubism. A central theme of the show is the role of format and its representational consequences in the Cubist experiment.
