Eh?: A Tweevening with Picasso’s unknowns

If you’re in love with either art or Picasso (realistically, probably both) you’ll want to head down to the Tweed Museum of Art for the next

Tweevening installment with Ed Newman presenting Picasso’s interpretation of “The Unknown Masterpiece.”

The story has inspired many artists, and the Tweed Museum of Art has added a pair of iterations of Picasso’s works on the subject to its collection as a gift of Alice B.

O’Connor and John Brickson.

“The Unknown Masterpiece” is a story by Honore de Balzac that deals with abstract art. The piece was written long before the idea of abstract art was popular. Newman’s talk will primarily revolve around Picasso’s interpretations, but could delve into anything from cave drawings to the ceiling of the

Sistine Chapel.

The Tweevening will take place at 6:30 p.m. Aug. 5 at the Tweed Museum of Art in the Ordean Court on the campus of the University of Minnesota Duluth.
