Jay A. Clarke, Manton Curator of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs discusses the Clark Art Institute’s exhibition Picasso: Encounters. The exhibition and lecture investigate how Pablo Picasso’s (1881–1973) creative collaborations fueled and strengthened his art, challenging the notion of Picasso as an artist alone with his craft.
