Phyllis Wattis Theater

This program features three distinct perspectives on Picasso and his impact on American art. Clark explores the artist's terrific fecundity of the 1920s; Bernstein examines Jasper Johns's artistic response to the Spaniard; and Wagner discusses David Smith's reaction to Picasso through his innovative sculptures. A Guernica-related film program follows the discussion.
