Picasso: Select Prints and Ceramics

Location: Second-floor gallery On View: April 20-August 23, 2012

One of the greatest figures of the modern era, Pablo Picasso, is represented by a series of lithographs, etchings and ceramics through which the artist explores subjects ranging from Spanish cultural traditions to quaint depictions of animals. The works range in date from the 1930s to the 1960s and capture the potent expressiveness of the master's hand even in the most contained and simple of compositions.

The 50-minute video, Artists of the 20th Century: Pablo Picasso, plays daily at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. in the video gallery adjacent to the Picasso exhibition.
