after picasso

Henri Matisse | MoMA

Henri Matisse—the second-most exhibited artist at the museum after Pablo Picasso—was the subject of MoMA’s first monographic exhibition. This 1931 show, the most comprehensive presentation of the artist’s work to be held in the United States to date, included a sweeping assortment of paintings, sculptures, drawings, and prints spanning from the artist’s student years to his most recent work. The catalogue included a 1908 essay by Matisse in which the artist explained his process of constant artistic growth, a passage that still rang true in 1931: “I do not repudiate any of my paintings but I would not paint one of them in the same way had I to do it again. My destination is always the same but I work out a different route to get there.” Read the out-of-print exhibition catalogue, see installation views, and more via our online exhibition history.

There is usually a point in interviews with her when the writer remarks that Harry is still very beautiful. I’m never sure what to make of this – it is as if we expect a woman’s features to rearrange themselves into something resembling a Picasso portrait after a certain age. Harry was breathtakingly beautiful when she found fame, in her thirties, and she still has the same bone structure, the same features. She is just older… Harry will turn 70 in July, but she says she has no thought of retiring, citing Yoko Ono’s full-on performances in her eighties as an inspiration. “I guess I’m supposed to be shocked by it,” she says of her upcoming birthday. “And maybe I will be. But I’m amazed by ageing and how it happens differently for different people.” She laughs again, eyes glittering with mischief. “All I can say is, I’m a lucky fucking bitch!”

Share an unforgettable holiday experience with an after-hours tour of Picasso Sculpture on December 27, 28, 29, and 30 or January 2. Tickets start at $65.

[160324] 2Min Fanaccs @ Tokyo Day-1 concert~

After Taemin came back after changing his torn pants, Minho snuggled him to give encouragement. (cr. smaeighter85)  

2min were flirting during Dazzling girl by grabbing each other’s shoulder.

After “Your Number”, Taemin to Minho (patting his own jacket): “I want to take it off”. But it looked like Minho said, “After the light dims"

after Picasso, they greeted in a line. Taemin was muttering some random Korean while laughing. Minho gave him a back hug. Another fanacc says Taemin was bit confused because the setlist was changed and kept muttering randomly in Korean, eventually Minho hugged him.

After “Boys will be boys”, when they walk down the runway to the sub stage, Minho was hugging Onew’s shoulder with his left hand. Key began to walk across and put his hands on Taemin and Onew’s shoulder, but Taemin let go and grabbed Minho’s arm. (cr. 2min_Twomin)   


Natural contortionists, Anhingas are believed to have inspired the Cubist art movement after Pablo Picasso watched his father attempt to paint one. The secret to their legendary flexibility is well known to selachimorphologists and keepers of housecats alike; rather than use a rigid bone system, these aquatic Turkeys have replaced their vertebral column with a pliable cartilaginous scaffold. This rather surprising setup allows lightning-fast strikes as their neck muscles are assisted by the inherent elasticity of cartilage.

Spend a night at the museum this weekend with an after-hours tour of Picasso, Pollock, or Torres-García.

160324 JAT Tokyo

The setlist has changed, and after Picasso, they were supposed to be lined up for the talk part but for some reason, Taemin didn’t seem to understand something for a bit because he was muttering to himself in Korean while laughing/grinning. Eventually, Minho hugged his back and gathered him up.
