Pablo Picasso Musical Instruments

Pablo Picasso Musical Instruments

Nevada Museum of Art
160 West Liberty Street

Cubism at its finest.

"In Picasso’s Musical Instruments and Fruit Bowl on a Pedestal, fragments of a traditional still life composition are identifiable: a violin, sheet music, and decorative furniture components are enveloped among other flattened, colorful geometric shapes. This experimental and innovative approach to making art revolutionized the artistic scene in Europe and eventually influenced artists working in the United States."
