A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

Picasso and Paper

Royal Academy of Arts London Art

“To draw you must close your eyes and sing,” Picasso once said, and the songs he sang with paper ranged from ditties to folk tunes to arias. Picasso didn’t simply put pencil to paper, he tore, twisted, and burned it in endless experimentation, sometimes using it to create 3-D forms. “Picasso and Paper,” organized by the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Royal Academy of Arts, London, brings together 300 of these works, embodiments of Picasso’s ever roaming imagination. —E.C.

The exhibition travels to the Cleveland Museum of Art, where it will be on view from May 24 to August 23, 2020.
