Kenneth E. Silver, Guest Curator of Chaos and Classicism: Art in France, Italy, and Germany, 1918–1936 and Professor of Modern Art at New York University, shares some of his top recommendations for visitors to the exhibition, including three sculptural works, two contrasting sets of chairs, and two Parisian couture dresses. He also highlights Pablo Picasso’s elegiac Woman in White (1923), a painting he feels embodies the grandeur, tragedy, and beauty of the classical idea in art of the interwar period.
