What most impresses me about Picasso’s etchings was his gift of expressing the features of a face or a body with utter simplicity.
Picasso could compose the silhouette of a face by using only a single drawn line. Delicate, expressive eyes in 1 or 2 fluid lines. Bushy tufts of hair with 3 or 4 strokes. He had ability that was astonishing in its simplicity. The culmination of skill and learned technique.
As it is with art, it is so with food. The successful preparation of high-quality food into dishes of beauty, sustenance and nutrition is exactly the same. The culmination of skill and learned technique.
So, indulge a couple of hours with Picasso’s etchings and lithographs at the Cincinnati Art Museum. Feel inspired. It’s time to garden.
