Rare Original Rembrandt and Picasso Works Displayed at Castile Galerie in Charlotte, NC
Original creations by two of the world's greatest artist of all times will be brought together for Rembrandt and Picasso - Two Masters opened March 30 at Castile Galerie in Charlotte, NC. The exhibition will continue through April 30.
Pablo Picasso (Spanish 1881 -1973) was greatly influenced by the work of both old and modern masters. One of the lengthiest and most complex of these artistic dialogs focused on the work of Rembrandt van Rijn (1608-1669).
An intermittent source of inspiration in Picasso's art from 1934 on, Rembrandt's paintings, etchings and drawings served as a sustained and compelling focus of exploration for Picasso during the last seven years of his life 1967 - 1973.
Picasso viewed Rembrandt as an artistic father figure. By the time he embarked on a concentrated exploration of Rembrandt's work in 1966, Picasso had already executed variations after more works by Rembrandt than any other past artist.
Castile Galerie has acquired over 30 Picasso and Rembrandt original etchings and important works on paper which illustrate this relationship - giving the gallery visitor the opportunity to own a piece of history.
