If you've never walked through the Guggeheim Museum, now is the time to do it. Currently through January 23, the museum is showcasing an exquisite Pablo Picasso show: "Picasso Black and White". With over 100 works spanning the decades of 1904 to 1971 in either sculpture, painting or studies, this body of work is what Picasso is all about. The exhibit tells the story of his life in black and white, early times of love, days in Provence, love betrayals and muses, French occupation in the 1940s, reconstruction of the 1950s, and old age after.
The ongoing question when you visit the Guggenheim is whether to start at the bottom and walk up or start at the top and walk down. This show moves chronologically from the bottom up. I would love to re-visit and start at the top. Would it be more uplifting to see a young man's love of beauty as you head out the door into the beautiful and breezy Manhattan?
