Well I was just doing some reading online and I found out that some of Picasso's more unknown works are being put on display at the Frick in New York and the National Gallery of Art in D.C.
I'm not the hugest fan of Picasso, but I can definitely respect art that defined a generation. What I like about the art collection is that about 100 drawings of his will be put on display, such as sketches and other things that he kept in his personal collection.
So, for the first time many normal art lovers can kind of see into the person that Picasso was on a day-to-day basis, things that he coveted the most and things he hated more than the rest. It will give a true understanding to us regular folk just what was going through his head.
Picasso's Drawings, 1890-1921: Reinventing Tradition will be at The Frick Collection until January 8, 2012.
What's cool about those dates to me is that Picasso was born in 1881... which means some of those early drawings were from when he was nine years old. If I were able to get to the Frick before January 8th I would most definitely give this a shot. So, for those of you in New York and D.C. don't pass up this great chance.

I will send you updates on upcoming art shows. Also, I will occasionally tell you about new art I'm making and give you a chance to collect my art before I post them on my site for sale.
