Featuring the legendary artworks on human figures displaying 75 paintings on paper and several sculptures he created during his emerging career. Available in the exhibit are geometric abstractions, interesting portraits of Picasso’s personal affairs, and his famous cubist works.
“Viewers will see how, as Picasso continuously deconstructed and then remade the body, he was also recasting the history of figuration as a combination of his own psychological view of humanity and observations about the disruptive nature of life in the 20th century,”-Frist Art Museum chief curator Mark Scala in a statement.
“Continuing through the exhibition, visitors will encounter paintings, sculptures, and works on paper that reflects Picasso’s experiments with a variety of styles, including surrealism, neoclassicism, and expressionism.”
