“To finish a work is to kill it,” said Picasso.

What can we learn from paintings left unfinished by their makers? In this series we explore ideas around the finished and the unfinished. What do we mean by the word ‘finish’, and how do we know when a painting is complete?

In this session, discover the intentionally unfinished or unresolved style of Monet’s Impressionist paintings.
