The current exhibition of BECKMANN-PICASSO/PICASSO-BECKMANN has been extended for two weeks which will give me the time to see the show and post a review. Look for it here in the next few days. After having our appetites whetted at the magnificant Matisse/Picasso exhibit and the Max Beckman show at the MoMA Queens, it seems only fitting and oddly familiar to see these two giants paired together toe-to-toe on Manhattan soil.

Richard L. Feigen & Co. and Jan Krugier Gallery are pleased to announce a major collaborative exhibition Beckmann-Picasso/Picasso-Beckmann on view from October 30 to January 31 at the premises of Richard L. Feigen & Co., 34 East 69th Street. The exhibition is comprised of over 20 paintings and an extensive selection of prints and drawings by these two powerful masters of the 20th century. The juxtaposition of these works from the inter-war, Second World War, and postwar periods throws into relief two distinct styles, trajectories, and personalities, and highlights some of their shared formal and thematic concerns.
