Rowan T + Seattle Art Museum (again)

I went to see Picasso again because the first time I went it was really crowded. I was once again shocked at the sheer quantity of art in the exhibit as well as the flexibility exhibited in Picasso's styles. Last time I had to rush by one of my favorite pieces, El Matador, but this time I stood and really looked at it. It's exciting to simply be in the room with a work painted by the hands of a well known master. But there's also something wonderful about forgetting who painted a work and just falling into it and seeing it afresh.
