death by paper cut

{September 6, 2006}   modern masters

for my next essay, i’m examining the intricate relationship between the success of artists and the art dealers, namely Picasso, and then comparing this relationship with those of other modern masters.

Trivia: according to wikipedia, Picasso’s full name is, “Pablo Diego José Santiago Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno Crispín Crispiniano de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Ruiz Picasso.

and just as i’m about to immerse myself in academic research, the Picasso exhibition going on at the NGV International. How timely, how convenient and how arty.

in reading up on impressionists, post-impressionists and the throngs of modernist strands to follow, i conjure up in my mind the bourgeoisie french galleries situated along cobbled rues. makes me want to bask in the soundtrack of le fabuleux destin d’ amelie poulain and jeux d’enfants.
