About the Exhibit

Picasso’s portraits of friends and family uncover the creative process as he moved between drawing from life and depicting caricatures, while employing his genius as a draughtsman through his quintessential expressive use of line. While the human face has a myriad of expressions and viewpoints, Picasso reduced the difficulty of depicting this complexity while simultaneously creating portraits with such emotional intensity they may be consecutively perceived as both highly personal statements and through the lens of a viewer’s own experience. It is interesting to note that in many of his portraits, the object is often depicted as a solitary figure—distanced, yet intimate in its detailed tenderness. This exhibition of 35 prints is an exploration not only of Picasso’s mastery of a wide variety of print media, but a continuation of a question posed by the artist himself, “Are we to paint what’s on the face, what’s inside the face, or what’s behind it?”

A prolific and tireless innovator of art forms, Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) influenced the course of 20th-century art with unparalleled magnitude. Inspired by African and Iberian art and developments in the world around him, Picasso contributed significantly to a number of artistic movements, notably Cubism, Surrealism, Neoclassicism, and Expressionism. Along with Georges Braque, Picasso is recognized for pioneering Cubism in an attempt to reconcile three-dimensional space with the two-dimensional picture plane.
