There are many hidden away gems of art in NYC.
Washington Square Park is sometimes known as "New York University Country." Without a designated campus, NYU blends in with the urban daily life among a radius of several blocks with a couple of edifices appointed for classes and student housing.
In a complex of residential buildings on Bleecker Street that is part of a New York University housing compound, within its courtyard sits a Picasso statue.
Typically, a work of art by Picasso can be found at MOMA, the Whitney and the Guggenheim Museums in New York City. Known as the “Bust of Sylvette,” this Picasso is a recreation of an original sculpture by Picasso in super-size.
A sculptor from Norway, Carl Nesjär, executed the form of the Bust of Sylvette out of 60-ton concrete in 1967. The original work by the great master of cubism occurred in1934 using a 24" sheet metal, whereas this version stands 36 feet high and 20 feet wide.
Picasso engaged in the scaled rendering and was instrumental in placing its exact position in the courtyard. For this reason, his name is attached to the sculpture as an authentic Picasso.
