You think you've seen everything there is to see about Picasso, and then you see the new Museum of Modern Art sculpture retrospective. It shows how clever and engaged Picasso was with the immediate world around him, that his method of bricolage, taking things from this and that to craft his sculpture, was so original and so charming. For years artists have been inspired by Picasso. I imagine a whole new generation seeing this show and being similarly stimulated.
I was delighted to have the chance to chat with Aidan earlier this week, just in time for the Poldark season one finale episodes airing on PBS this Sunday. Handsome but humble, gracious and grateful, from all appearances, in the twenty minutes we had together, he's everything you'd hope he would be.
