Special Exhibition Tours We Offer

Picasso's "Le Tricorne" (May 29, 2015 – Ongoing)

The New-York Historical Society is proud to unveil our newly acquired and conserved Picasso. Picasso painted the stage curtain for the two-act ballet Le Tricorne, which premiered on July 22, 1919, at the Alhambra Theatre in London. The exhibition positions Picasso's curtain in dialogue with paintings from the European tradition that provide background to the artist's work and exemplify the conventions he rebelled against. Other themes pivot around dance subjects and explore contemporary American paintings, sculpture, posters, and watercolors.

The Hirschfeld Century: The Art of Al Hirschfeld (May 22, 2015 – October 12, 2015)

Al Hirschfeld (1903–2003) brought a set of visual conventions to the task of performance portraiture when he made his debut in 1926. Now for the first time, nine decades of his art are collected in The Hirschfeld Century: The Art of Al Hirschfeld documenting Hirschfeld's life and career and, to a great extent, the history of the performing arts in the 20th century and beyond. Visitors will have the opportunity to trace this unique artist's evolution by viewing his own body of work, including drawings, paintings, selections from sketchbooks, ephemera, and video.
