Picasso in Occupied Paris- The Triumph of Pan

6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Event Details

How did Picasso, an anti-fascist and degenerate artist, not only survive, but produce a body of work during the Nazi occupation of Paris? Several of Picasso's fellow artists decide to stay in France. Why did they remain in France under great personal risk? We examine these questions as well as take a look at Picasso’s work from this period.
