The Iberian Peninsula

 This month the Kennedy Center is featuring the culture of the Iberian Peninsula in its Iberian Suite. I spent a few hours wandering in and out of the exhibits. The highlight for me was the Picasso exhibit. He created some beautiful art objects in imitation of the art of ancient Greece. Remarkable!

 Another highlight was the "Tribute to Jose Saramago" panel discussion. Very stimulating and informative!

And a lovely fashion exhibit - all blue and white like Delft pottery.

And four striking portraits of famous literary figures made out of wine corks. 

Frederico Garcia Lorca

Gabriel Marquez

 Gabriela Mistral

Jorge Amado
