Professor Lydia Gasman, who died in 2010, was a renowned scholar and teacher of art history with a profound understanding of Picasso and his role in 20th century art and culture. This exhibition, organized by LYDM gallery director Lyn Bolen, connects and combines Gasman's work to that of former students - and to Picasso's work, also on view. The exhibition is coordinated with the inauguration of the Lydia Csato Gasman Archives for Picasso and Modernist Studies under the leadership of Ms. Bolen and colleague Victoria Beck Newman.
Lyn Bolen explains the organizing principles of the show and introduces the Lydia Gasman Archives.
