Pablo Picasso was by no means a great sculptor.
Some of his sculptures are quite inventive but he was not a Brancusi or a Giacometti.
Most of them are three dimensional drawings.
The same counts for his ceramics, which he used at best as an alternative base to paint on.
Having said that, the exhibition Picasso by the Sea, which is in its last week at Museum Beelden aan Zee, is quite interesting.
It doesn’t show great masterpieces, but it does show a rather underexposed aspect of one of the most influential oeuvres both art historically and in the public mind. Enjoy!
