Art Guild: The Young Picasso-Blue and Rose Periods

FebArtGuildJoin Art Guild to tour "The Young Picasso: Blue and Rose Periods" at Fondation Beyeler.  Discover Pablo Picasso's early emotionally compelling work in his paintings and sculpture. His palette of blue tones and portrayal of alcoholics, tramps, prostitutes and the poor during the Blue Period conveyed a dark or sad mood. The later Rose Period brought a lighter mood, with a palette of pinks and oranges and acrobats, circus performers and harlequins as subjects.
