Picasso at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, February 1941

Harriet Johnson (left) of Edison High School is completely bewildered by the painting “The Ram’s Head” finished by Picasso in 1925. While its many intricacies puzzled Miss Johnson, Donald Knox of Marshall High forgot the many patterns to marvel at the beautiful shading of colors achieved by the artist. Donald, who was enthusiastic about the exhibition, agreed Picasso certainly is an “individualist.”
