The New CriterionEmma Moley ’15, who is taking an off term and interning at The New Criterion in New York, recently returned to Dartmouth for Homecoming weekend and took in the Picasso exhibition at the Hood Museum of Art.

In an opinion piece published by The New Criterion, Moley says “The Vollard Suite” has been described as a “walk inside Picasso’s mind,” which she calls “an apt analogy, as the parallels between Picasso’s evolving art over these seven years and the transformations in his personal life become obvious as one explores the collection.”

The Hood exhibition points out the influence artists such as Goya and Rembrandt had on Picasso, Moley says, and to “further aid visitors in making this connection, the exhibition includes select pieces by those two artists alongside Picasso’s work.”
