The exhibition explores Picasso’s expansive approach to the traditional genre of landscape painting. From his earliest days in art school until the year before his death, Picasso used landscapes to process his perception of the world and jumpstart his creative evolution. MMA’s presentation of Picasso Landscapes features twenty-seven paintings and sculptures spanning the entirety of Picasso’s seventy-five-year career, along with historical film clips and photographs to contextualize the depth and breadth of Picasso’s work with landscape.
Picasso Landscapes: Out of Bounds is accompanied by a catalogue that is co-published by the American Federation of Arts and DeMonico Books • D.A.P. It can be purchased in The Museum Store.
