"Picasso, Braque, and the Cubist Legacy: Prints and Drawings from the Collection"

The McNay has a very fine collection of Cubist prints and drawings, including a particularly fine group of etchings and drypoints by Georges Braque. The museum has made a concerted effort in the last few years to add to this strength of the collection. These new acquisitions not only provide fascinating context for the work of Pablo Picasso and Braque but show the different ways various artists used the ideas introduced by those pioneers of Cubism. This exhibition will be the first time the public has a chance to see newly acquired works by Louis Marcoussis, Jean-Emile Laboureur, and Henri van Straten alongside the Picasso and Braque works that inspired them. Comparing the prints and drawings in the show will reveal how each artist used Cubist elements in different ways, contributing to the evolution of modern art throughout the twentieth century. The show will show how Cubism inspired or influenced other important art movements of the twentieth century, including Futurism and Expressionism. Both American and European prints and drawings will be included to show the reach of Cubist ideas not only over time but across the Atlantic as well. Some of the other artists included in the exhibition are Fernand Leger, Albert Gleizes, Burgoyne Diller, Stuart Davis, Werner Drewes, Sybil Andrews, C.R.W. Nevinson, Mildred Rackley, and Fannie Hillsmith.

Sinya on Lone Man Creek in Wimberley
“Absolutely perfect weekend getaway! We were worried that it might be too hot inside the tent, as both my husband and I love our room cold, but it was perfect around 70 degrees…especially in the summer. Bed was very comfortable and you could just sink in and sleep. I slept so deeply. It is a beautiful, serene place to stay and I could not recommend it more!” - Yelper Larissa I
