Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! tonight? Today’s Jeopardy! results will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.
The article in question appeared in the May 1910 edition of Architectural Record and was from a conversation between Picasso and American critic Gelett Burgess. Picasso’s women in the article were described as “ultramarine ogresses” and “monstrous, monolithic women, creatures like Alaskan totem poles, hacked out of solid, brutal colors, frightful, appalling!” The article is seen today as introducing French modern art to the United States, though it was seen as at least partly satirical.
