Virginia Museum of Fine Arts to Show Picasso Works

February 12, 2010

A traveling exhibition of essential works from Pablo Picasso's personal collection is making its East Coast debut this coming weekend.

"Picasso: Masterpieces from the Musee National Picasso, Paris" is to run Feb. 19 through May 15 at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. The exhibition will include 176 of the artist's paintings, drawings, sculptures and etchings, and serves as a retrospective covering each notable artistic period of his eight-decade career.

The touring exhibit was made possible because the Paris museum is undergoing renovations that won't be complete until 2012. Richmond is the second of the exhibit's three U.S. showings and the only East Coast stop.
