Remember when I mentioned Picasso and the Allure of Language? The exhibition explores the artist's relationship with writers as well as the impact of language on his work, and it just opened a few days ago at Duke University's Nasher Museum of Art. As noted in July, the Nasher has put together a great website to accompany the show, but here are a few more links that might entice you to venture to North Carolina this fall and see in person Picasso's works alongside related books, letters, photographs, and manuscripts.

For those of you who are in the area, the museum will host a panel discussion, August 27 at 7 p.m., featuring curator Susan Greenberg Fisher of Yale University Art Gallery and Patricia Leighten, professor in Duke's Department of Art, Art History & Visual Studies. Reservations are encouraged.
The exhibition continues through January 3, 2010.
