Picassos's Women and Vincent Van Goghs's Drawings
Dear friends,

We are throwing a party and hope that you can come!

Two events have been scheduled.

1. "Picasso's Women" Art Evening

Sunday, November 13th, Duke Ellington Room, each person should bring something for other people to eat or drink.

The doors will open at 4pm; the presentation begins around 6:30pm. Feel free to invite friends.

Thanks to Andrea Andresakis for making this event possible.

This Art Evening explores the complex relationship Picasso had with women. In the words of his grandson Olivier Widmaier Picasso, author of "Picasso: The real family story":

"My grandfather produced the twentieth century's most extraordinary portraits of women, oscillating between the purest classicism and the most controversial deconstruction. In every instance, he listened only to his instinct - and his love. This love was essential and ever present, even if, each time, its object was different."

He continues to write:

"Legend has it that Picasso was one of the most seductive men of the twentieth century. Yet he scarsely possessed the traditional attributes of the type. He was short - around five feet and five inches - stocky and heavy set. Once asked whether he was lacking anything in life, he replied:'Yes, another two inches!'".

Kindly RSVP to this Evite so will will have an idea of how many people to expect for the Picasso event.

2. Vincent Van Gogh: The Drawings

Sunday, November 20, 2pm, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 82nd Street and 5th Avenue

We will first visit the exhibition at 2pm. Then, at 3pm, we will attend lectures by Leo Jansen (Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam)and Colta Ives (The Metropolitan Museum of Art) on Van Gogh's letters and drawings.

Finally, around 5:30pm, the group will head over to Heidi's and Frank's apartment at 323 East 89th Street, Apt. 1C, between 1st and 2nd Avenue. Please bring something for other people to eat or drink to the apartment.

Andrea, John and Frank look forward to seeing all of you for these special events! Best,
