The curation of the exhibition gave the right homage to Picasso because each gallery room represented the time period of his works respectfully. It takes the visitor on a journey through Picasso’s art evolution. For example, the time frames, 1902-1909 starts his early works and cubist sculptures — and ends with his sheet metal sculptures in 1954-1964. Technically, the years are 1902-1964, which is 62 years total of Picasso’s works.
I highly recommend going to the exhibition because it has not been in the United States for half a century and it is a humbling experience viewing Picasso’s collections. I was able to see some of my favourite sculptures and new-found favorites as well.The new favorites of mine are: Man with a Lamb; Death’s Head; and Sylvette. They each have a different type of movement on their own and have their own personalities. There is even a little bit of humor in the sculptures through the expressions of the animals or person.
I enjoyed how Picasso’s sculptures were not perfect like classic, ancient Greek or Roman sculptures. You can really see his emotions and point of view through the eras.
Here are a few photos:
The sculptures are from the Musée national Picasso-Paris and the museum helped organize the Picasso Sculpture exhibition will be on display until February 7, 2016. Make sure you attend the exhibition!
