The unique relationship between Pablo Picasso and the iconic photographer Lee Miller is explored in a stunning new exhibition at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery this summer. This fascinating relationship, between the greatest artist of the twentieth century and the beautiful model, who became a skilled and highly influential photographer, spanned 36 years, from their first meeting in 1937 to Picasso’s death in 1973. 

Over the course of their friendship Miller photographed Picasso more than a thousand times, and the artist, in turn, created a remarkable series of portraits of Lee.

Museums are increasingly displaying jewelry as a form of wearable art in its own right, sometimes with the conversation centering around the innovative use of materials in alternative ways.

“Jewelry is more than just you wear to complement your clothes. If you pick good jewelry, it’s like wearing a piece of art,” says Ulysses Dietz, curator of the exhibition, titled "From Pearls to Platinum to Plastic," opening at the Newark Museum in June.

Though “Dance: Movement, Rhythm, Spectacle” occupies just one large room (arranged to feel like three) at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, it seems to open windows in many directions. Its exhibits range from the 1890s to the 1980s, vividly demonstrating how radically that century brought change to social dance, dance theater and ideas of dance in art. Diversely diverse, the show, which opened this month, offers a panoply of artistic media (photographs, paintings, watercolors, prints, woodcuts, etchings, graphite drawings, lithographs and film), dancers of various races and a huge assortment of dance costumes.

A retrospective of works by Henry Moore opens at London’s Osborne Samuel gallery on Friday, 22 May (until 27 June). The selling exhibition of around 60 pieces was a good two years in the making, according to the gallery’s co-owner, Peter Osborne. He says that its “catalyst” was the previously unseen collection of Moore’s sister, Elizabeth (Betty) Howarth of works given to her in the 1920s and 1930s.

The Indianapolis Museum of Art (IMA) has spent over nine years honing their collection of avant garde fashion designs. This year, they are able to debut their efforts in an exhibition, simply titled, "Cutting Edge Fashion: Recent Acquisitions."

The show will look at an array of pioneering designers who have altered the fashion conversation world—be it through new silhouettes, innovative use of materials and draping, or the subversion of the status quo. Viewers, for instance, will find a design by Austrian-born fashion designer Rudi Gernreich, the inventor of the topless single-piece swimsuit, the monokini.

No museum exhibition is perfect, but some are less perfect than others. Surprisingly, even these shows sometimes turn out to be exceptionally valuable. They clarify notions of quality and the pleasures and rigors of looking, for curators and visitors alike.

“Embracing Modernism: Ten Years of Drawings Acquisitions” at the Morgan Library & Museum is one of these flawed gems. Of its nearly 100 drawings, about half are either weak or just acceptable, which is not good enough for an institution of the Morgan’s stature.
