Janie Cohen, Director, Fleming Museum of Art,
University of Vermont
Is there anything new to add to our numerous analyses of Picasso's shocking Demoiselles d'Avignon (1907)? Plenty - including one idea that has been staring at us for all their 105 years.
Janie Cohen, director of the Fleming Museum at the University of Vermont and internationally published Picasso scholar, promises to explain all this to you and more on Wednesday, October 16th at 7 pm in the Fridman Gallery, 287 Spring Street (between Varick and Hudson Streets).
Free and open to the public, this is one Demoiselles lecture that will not only add to your iconographic arsenal on this radically revolutionary painting, but will change your mind about yourself in relation to viewing this work of art. Get ready to be surprised and enthralled by Janie Cohen's convincing new research on Picasso's notorious brothel.
For more information, please click on the press release. Ms. Cohen's lecture is the second in the New York Arts Exchange Fall 2013 Lecture Series at the Fridman Gallery.
Copies of The Demoiselles Revisited (wherein I say my piece on the painting) will be on sale in the gallery.
