What to look for on Smart TalkThursday, August 1, 2019: 

Smart Talk travels to the Susquehanna Art Museum to discuss the museum's new exhibit, PICASSO: A Life in Print. 

The exhibit of prints spans Pablo Picasso's prolific career, with work from 1904-1970. Though Picasso never received formal training in printmaking, he practiced working with the medium to develop his distinctive ideas. 

A Life in Print includes pieces from the historic Suite des Saltimbanques, Picasso's first major body of work in printmaking; Suite Vollard, a group of one hundred prints commissioned by famed art dealer Ambroise Vollard; and the Caisse à Remords, prized by collectors because they represent an intimate view of the artist's personal vision.

The Picasso exhibit includes pieces from the John Szoke Gallery in New York City. Established in 1974, the gallery specializes in works on paper with a focus on prints by Pablo Picasso and Edvard Munch. 

Joining Smart Talk is John Szoke, art collector and director of the John Szoke Gallery. 

PICASSO: A Life in Print is on view at the Susquehanna Art Museum through September 22. 

This Smart Talk Road Trip is supported by Roof Advisory Group.
