The Musée National Picasso in Paris holds the largest and most comprehensive collection of Pablo Picasso’s artwork in the world. Housed in a converted 17th century mansion, the Museum is undergoing an extensive renovation, making it possible for their unprecedented holdings – much of which came from Picasso’s personal collection – to tour the globe. With its U.S. debut at the Seattle Art Museum, this exhibition marks a rare opportunity to view works from this stellar collection.

Pablo Picasso, the Spanish-born artist best known for his contribution to the Cubist movement, is easily regarded as one of the most significant and influential artists of the 20th century. With a career that spanned eight decades, which included the tumultuous times during both World Wars and the Spanish Civil War, Picasso’s creative legacy is defined by his drive toward inventiveness and a fierce need to stay ahead of the curve stylistically. Approximately 75 paintings and sculptures are complemented by a selection of prints, drawings and photographs that embody Picasso’s eclectic range of styles and dedicated innovations.

This large cross-section of work tells the story of Picasso’s development as an artist and his impact on the history of modern art. Over 150 works represent nearly every period throughout his long and prolific career. The exhibition includes iconic paintings like La Celestina (1904) from his Blue Period, the Cubist Man with a Guitar (1911) and a 1970 self-portrait The Matador. Other works convey his evolution toward Cubism, the influences of primitive and African art, and evidence of Neoclassic and Surrealist styles.
