Interview: Jean Clair on "The New Man" in Ottawa




Often I tend to get swept up in contemporary work and forget about masterpieces of the past. I'll try to take a closer look after talking with Jean Clair, former director of Paris's Picasso Museum, who recently headed up a one-of-a-kind exhibit at the National Gallery of Canada called "The 1930s: The Making of the New Man." Clair has a lot of experience with the modern masters like Picasso, Balthus, and Miro and he quite rightly continues to advocate for their importance today. I'll post a full transcript tonight, but until then take a look at the condensed interview published in today's National Post.
