Monet, Rembrandt, Warhol. These are just a few of the highfalutin names echoed through the halls of the Bellagio’s Gallery of Fine Art. Once or twice a year, the curators put their awesomely artsy brains together to bring world-class masterpieces to Las Vegas.
As if we all hadn’t seen the über impressive flower-thingies on the lobby ceiling that are made of hand-blown glass (there are 2,000 of them BTW), they go and blow our minds with big name artist’s some of us have only heard about on TV. No need to point fingers, you know who you are.
The current swanky installation comes from that of a one Pablo Picasso. Maybe you’ve heard of him? The new exhibit will be dedicated to 43 pieces of the iconic artist’s work. Opening July 3, “Creatures and Creativity” will showcase 19 lithographs, 13 linocuts, 8 paintings, and three rare plates that all tell the story of Picasso’s modern works from 1938-1971.
Newsflash: Picasso apparently loved the ladies. His art changed every time a new muse came into his life so most of his modern works were influenced by women. Hey, don’t judge the guy, most of us can’t resist the lures of a smokin’ hot chick.
Focusing on his favorite theme, the human figure, the exhibition aims to lead guests through the mind and creative processes of the famed artist. Based on his interpretations, this may or may not be terrifying for some of you.
This highbrow exhibition bids adieu on January 10, 2016.
