February 6 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Location: Lamb Room

During the Nazi occupation of Paris, Picasso and other artists not only survived, they thrived. Artist and lecturer Cliff Tisdell will discuss how Picasso, a known anti-fascist and labeled a “degenerate artist”, managed to produce art and remain in France during World War II. This lecture will examine Picasso’s work from this period and inspect how he made his own statements against fascism with art, while under house arrest.
