At the Kimbell: The Age of Picasso and Matisse (Take One)

Took a close look at the Kimbell Art Museum's latest exhibition, The Age of Picasso and Matisse: Modern Masters from the Art Institute of Chicago.  Though I remember some from Chicago during a brief Chicago visit in the last ten years, there are many "new" works to consider, enough to prompt me into joining the Kimbell as a "new member." Hence, I'll be back to see more of this soon, hopefully.
Suzanne Duchamp's Multiplication brisée et rétablie / Multipication Broken and Restored (1919).  Fun mix of color, shapes and text.
Flip the image surface of Multiplication brisée et rétablie and voila! La Tour Eiffel / The Eiffel Tower, as if crackling with elecricity. Are those planets and moons mysteriously manifesting?

Suzanne Duchamp (October 20, 1889-September 11, 1963) had three older brothers, also artists -- including Marcel Duchamp (1887-1968).

Erik-that's cool. Sometimes the joining thing keeps us current! I love Matisse.
