Art HistoryThe Museum’s landmark April 2010 exhibition, Picasso in The Metropolitan Museum of Art, offers an unprecedented opportunity to appreciate the Museum’s extensive collection of works by Pablo Picasso (Spanish, 1881–1973). It features 300 works, including the Museum’s complete holdings of paintings, drawings, sculptures, and ceramics by Picasso—never before seen in their entirety —as well as a selection of the artist’s prints. Notable for its remarkable group of early figure paintings, the Museum’s collection also stands out for its exceptional but little-known cache of drawings. The key subjects that variously sustained Picasso’s interest—the pensive harlequins of his Blue and Rose periods, the faceted tabletop still lifes of Cubist years, the classicizing bathers of the 1920s, the dreaming nudes of the 1930s, and the rakish musketeers of his final years—are amply represented by works, ranging in date from 1900 to 1968, on view from April 27 to August 1, 2010.
