Picasso 1932: Part I

The Tate Modern's Picasso exhibition "1932 - Love, Fame, Tragedy" focuses on this most significant year in Picasso's life.  I'll skip the biographical details, you can find them on the TATE site, but as an examination of Picasso fighting his way through painting it was fantastic.  His exploration was all over the map and his play with red, yellow and orange was well, on fire.  When I realized how often he was launching that analogous grouping I started back tracking through the exhibition.  I'll break this up into a couple of posts because the surface details matter. Compare and contrast what plays out in one year.
