Details from three collages completed many years ago, all highlighting women.
Two exhibits are running in New York right now that focus on The Art of the Woman:
The first, at Sothebys is aptly entitled Women. This special exhibition highlights art depicting the women from the collection of Steven and Alexandra Cohen. Photography was not allowed but click here to see the varied work in this exhibition by such artists as Picasso, Van Gogh, Matisse, Rauschenberg, and Richter.
The Museum of Modern Art currently has a fascinating show entitled The Printed Picture. This wonderful exhibition highlights the changing technology of picture making from the Renaissance to the present. Ink printing, photography, book printing, and digital printing are all explored. It is much more exciting then it sounds here! For each form of printing process, three types of examples are presented: ephemera, museum collection art, and - my favorite - details from the artwork enlarged 50 times. What does this have to do with The Art of the Woman you might ask? See the details below...and click on the details to see details of the details!
And to leave you with a video once again...
