Exploring Picasso’s work in sculpture with a particular emphasis on use of materials and processes, this monumental exhibition brings together 140 works created between 1902 and 1964, including forty on loan from the Picasso Museum in Paris, most of which have never before been displayed in the United States. Augmented by sketches and documentary photographs by Brassai, the installation is organized in chapters corresponding to the distinct periods during which Picasso devoted himself to sculpture, each time exploring with fresh intensity the modern possibilities of working in a three-dimensional form. Highlighting how the artist’s achievements in the creation of sculptural pieces were as revolutionary and influential as his celebrated paintings, the works are composed of not only bronze and stone but also clay, plaster, sheet metal, wood and beach pebbles as well as all manner of found objects great and small.

Related efforts not seen together since they were in Picasso’s studio are reunited including all six, miniature, painted bronze, “Glass of Absinthe,” sculptures from 1914 that suggest comical drunken faces and the five monumental heads of Marie-Thérèse in white plaster from 1931, more than have ever been shown together in the United States. Other outstanding works include the seminal “Still Life with Guitar,” (1912), “Cat,” (1941), “Little Girl Jumping Rope,” (1950), “Engraved Pebbles” (1945-1953) and “Woman With Hat,” (early 1960s) each a bravura display of the artist’s ability to bring forth the essence of his subject no matter the medium.
