Please join us at Tucker Hall Theater for a lecture by Professor Charles Palermo entitled Bread and Wine in Picasso’s Blue Period.  He will discuss some strange and previously mostly unnoticed features of important paintings and prints of Pablo Picasso’s so-called Blue Period. Certain curious features of these works, which were made between about 1902 and 1904, have never been subjected to very close scrutiny, but their ambiguous relation to Christian themes has long been noted. Palermo will consider the way the people in the pictures — and especially their strange poses — relate to those religious themes and will suggest what they mean for us, as people who look at pictures.
