Visiting Masterpieces: Pairing Picasso

Exhibition Website

Feb 13 2016 - Jun 26 2016

This dossier exhibition centers on pairing and juxtaposing works by Pablo Picasso (1881–1973). A loan of four major works from the Fondation Beyeler in Basel, Switzerland, and loans from private collections will complement the MFA’s holdings of painting and sculpture by the artist, looking at different stages of his career and his exploration of form.

“Visiting Masterpieces: Pairing Picasso” offers a unique opportunity to study the artist’s range of techniques and styles, with themes including the stylistic transformation of the human figure, variation of a single subject across works, and emulation of revered artistic forebears.
