Visiting an exhibition in person is a much richer experience than visiting online.

The general public saw Cubist artworks for the first time at that annual exhibition in Paris, what are your reactions to these paintings and sculpture nearly a century later? What was your favorite gallery in the exhibition and why? Which works of art impressed you the most and the least?

I love it!

Brilliant and illuminating...I feel as if I were there, at the studios, at the salons, reading the art magazines, when this movement was born. Congratulations!

I feel lucky to be in a place where such works are assembled together, allowing for a perspective to be gained that might otherwise not have a chance to form.

I thought the exhibit showed a very interesting man (and his peers) in an interesting light. It was very thought provoking and impressively arranged. It told the story of not only the works but also insight into why these works were created with a global perspective. It was very beautiful!

I very much hope that you enjoyed Picasso and the Avant-Garde in Paris. The 214 works that you saw on display by Picasso and his contemporaries, including Georges Braque, Marc Chagall, Juan Gris, Fernand Léger, and Joan Miró, were intended to give you a sense of the excitement and creativity that burst forth in Paris during the first half of the twentieth century. I was particularly excited to present Picasso’s involvement with some of the most important artistic movements of his time, such as Cubism and Surrealism. Another key feature of the exhibition was the room devoted to Salon Cubism, which partially recreated the 1912 Salon d’Automne exhibition. The general public saw Cubist artworks for the first time at that annual exhibition in Paris, and I wonder what your reactions to these paintings and sculpture are nearly a century later. What was your favorite gallery in the exhibition and why? Which works of art impressed you the most and the least? Please leave me your responses to the exhibition, which I look forward to reading.

Warmest wishes,

Michael Taylor
