You expect to see Picassos in an art museum, but I found 14 of them at the San Antonio Museum of Art, quite un-like what you’d expect.
“Some of Picasso’s most iconic paintings translated into a totally different media; the historic technique of tapestries.”
That’s SAMA’s Chief Curator, William Keyes Rudolph. With Picasso’s permission, in the 1950s, New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller commissioned these tapestries to be woven.
"Rockefeller was a great lover of modern art, particularly Picasso.”
