News: Picasso Exhibition Opens at The Met

Picasso, Gertrude Stein, 1906There aren’t many museums that need to look no further than their own collection to present such a large and sweeping exhibition on the work of one of the world’s most famous painters- but The Metropolitan Museum of Art isn’t just any museum. Through the generosity of benefactors and donations, The Met has over the years accumulated “one of the great repositories of Picasso’s work,” according the exhibition’s curator, Gary Tinterow. Included in the exhibition is The Met’s most famous Picasso, his portrait of Gertrude Stein. Though we suspect that after January’s unfortunate incident with The Actor, the crowds will be flocking to see the newly restored piece.
The exhibition Picasso in The Metropolitan Museum of Art is on display in the museum’s special second floor exhibition galleries through August 1st, at which point most of the works will go back into the vast storage rooms of the museum. Admission to the exhibition is included in your ticket price so make sure not to miss out.
On June 27th, The Met will be featuring a special Sunday at The Met with Picasso by offering free lectures starting at 1pm that culminate with the film The Mystery of Picasso (1955), directed by Henri-Georges Clouzot at 3pm. The Mystery of Picasso documents the artist’s studio as he creates twenty works for the film, ranging from ink drawings to oil murals.
