CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Work by one of the world's best-known artists will go on display at the Cincinnati Art Museum this summer.
It'll be just the second venue to host an unprecedented exhibition of Pablo Picasso's work. It previously appeared at a museum in Charlotte.
It's titled "Picasso Landscapes: Out of Bounds" and features paintings and sculptures by the artist from some 25 public and private collections.
“It is an extraordinary thing to be able to show an artist as renowned as Pablo Picasso in a wholly new light,” says Peter Jonathan Bell, PhD, the museum’s curator of European paintings, sculpture and drawings, who is leading the exhibition’s presentation in Cincinnati. “His mastery of the human form and of still life is unquestioned. With the works assembled for this exhibition, we are finally able to appreciate how significant landscape was for Picasso throughout his life, and in turn how consequential Picasso was for landscape painting—how he was able to transform this venerable genre to meet his needs as an innovator and expressive interpreter, reshaping the world around him through his art.”
It will run from June 23 through October 15.
