Seattle Art Museum lands major Picasso exhibit
SEATTLE — The Seattle Art Museum has landed a major exhibition of Pablo Picasso’s work.
The exhibit opens in October and will feature 75 paintings and sculptures from throughout Picasso’s eight-decade career, plus drawings and photographs.
The artworks come from the Musee National Picasso in Paris, which houses Picasso’s personal collection. The Musee Picasso recently closed for renovation, and the Seattle Art Museum says this is likely the only time such a comprehensive survey of Picasso’s work will travel the world.
Seattle is the exhibit’s first stop in the U.S. Among the highlights will be Cubist Man with a Guitar from 1911, Cat Clutching a Bird from 1939 and the self-portrait The Matador from 1970.
