Stage & Canvas

No more. A box camera that once belonged to Picasso has been unearthed with a roll of undeveloped film still inside. The resulting photographs — intriguing images made jagged and more forceful by the accidental marring of the lens by the camera’s previous owner — now lend a sharper clarity to that period when Picasso was still coming to terms with the then revolutionary discipline of cubism.
The Museum of New Art is greeting the New Year with an entire show devoted to Picasso’s Camera and I’ll be hard put to think of any forthcoming exhibit that will be able to top it.
PLEASE check it out before Feb. 25.
