Picasso's Drawing, 1890-1921: Reinventing Tradition

Picasso's Drawings, 1890-1921: Reinventing Tradition, October 4, 2011 through January 8, 2012

Pablo Picasso (1881–1973) is generally acknowledged to be the greatest draftsman of the twentieth century. The Frick Collection, New York, and the National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C., have co-organized an exhibition for 2011–12 that will look at the dazzling development of Picasso’s drawings, from the precocious academic exercises of his youth in the 1890s to the virtuoso classical works of the early 1920s. Through a selection of more than fifty works at each venue, the presentation will examine the artist’s stylistic experiments and techniques in this roughly thirty year period, which begins and ends in a classical mode and encompasses the radical innovations of Cubism and collage.
