Live From The Nelson: 'Gates Of Paradise,' And Picasso's African And Oceanic Influences

Oct 25, 2017

It's not every day you see — well, hear about — a set of 17-foot-tall, 4 1/2-ton gilded doors, but today is that day. We broadcast live from the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, and get the rundown on just such a set of doors, originally sculpted in the 15th century by Lorenzo Ghiberti. Then, we find out how a trip to the Musée d’ Ethnographie du Trocadéro transformed the way Pablo Picasso thought about the human body, and get a preview of the Nelson's newest exhibit.

'Through the Eyes of Picasso' will run at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art through April 8, 2018. For ticketing information, go to Nelson-Atkins.org.
