"Portraits Imaginaires," a late-in-life collaboration between Pablo Picasso and renowned lithographer Marcel Salinas, is a fascinating historical curiosity, a testament to the tenacity of the creative spirit. On display at Endicott College’s Center for the Arts through Aug. 21, the exhibit is a series of 29 "portraits" without real-life subjects, vibrant in execution, whimsical in content, with the artist making playful references to Rembrandt, Valasquez and, of course, himself. It is as intriguing and engaging as it is historically important since it is, essentially, the Spanish master's last work. For the full review, click here.
