Episode No. 265 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features curators George Shackelford and David Breslin.
Shackelford is the curator of “Monet: The Early Years” at the Kimbell Art Museum. The show features about 60 paintings from the first phase of Claude Monet’s career, from a painting Monet made in Normandy in 1858 when he was 18 years old, until 1872, when Monet lived in Argenteuil, along the Seine near Paris. The exhibition is on view through January 29, 2017, when it will travel to the Legion of Honor in San Francisco. The show’s beautiful catalogue was published by the Kimbell and distributed by Yale University Press. Amazon offers it for $50.
Breslin coordinated The Menil Collection’s presentation of “Picasso The Line,” an exhibition of Picasso’s line drawings. The exhibition was curated by Carmen Gimenez, the founding director of the Museo Picasso Malaga. Breslin wrote for the exhibition’s Menil-published, YUP-distributed catalogue about what he calls Picasso’s “cartographic line.” The exhibition is at the Menil through January 8, 2017. The catalogue is available from Amazon for $60.
