ArtSpeaks / Picasso's War: How Modern Art Came to America by Hugh Eakin

Friday, March 3 / 6PM

“Fascinating, eloquent, wonderfully lucid, Picasso’s War will change whatever we thought we knew about modern art and its complicated reception on this side of the Atlantic.”—Francine Prose, author of The Vixen 

Picasso’s War is the story about how a single exhibition, a decade in the making, irrevocably changed American taste, and in doing so saved dozens of the twentieth century’s most enduring artworks from the Nazis. Through a deft combination of new scholarship and vivid storytelling, Hugh Eakin shows how two men and their obsession with Picasso changed the art world forever. Hugh Eakin is a senior editor at Foreign Affairs. He has written for The New York Review of BooksVanity FairThe New Yorker, and The New York Times.
