Picasso: Drawing from Life

Pablo Picasso, Weeping Woman I, 1937.

111 S Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL 60603, USA

In the early 1900s, Pablo Picasso was a penniless student in Barcelona. He moved to Paris in 1908, became a key player in the invention of Cubism, and helped propel Modernism forward. Through the ups and downs of his life—volatile relationships, World Wars—his work was informed by his relationships with women as well as the behind-the-scenes printers, dealers, and family members who passed through his studio. This exhibition of 60 works focuses on Picasso’s art on paper—drawings, prints, and illustrated books. —Elena Clavarino
