"Picasso: The Artists Studio"
2001-06-08 until 2001-09-23
Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art
Hartford, CT, USA United States of America

For Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), the studio was the center of his world. There he negotiated with dealers, enthralled collectors, argued with critics, and seduced lovers. Picasso's irrepressible imagination and astonishing capacity for experimentation and self-renewal are dramatically revealed in his paintings of his studio. Spanning his entire career, they encompass an exhilarating range of styles, such as cubism, realism, symbolism, Surrealism, and an array of subjects, from portraits and homages to great artists of the past, to political commentaries and allegories of the creative process.

Unlike many modern artists who treated their studios as inviolable sanctuaries, Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) used his studio not only as a place of work, but as a social and intellectual center where he negotiated with dealers, enthralled collectors, argued with critics, and seduced lovers. The studio is a recurring theme throughout Picasso's long career, and the works shown here illustrate the evolution of both his artistic practice and his self-identity.

The thirty-five paintings and ten drawings in Picasso: The Artist's Studio, drawn from an array of international collections, span an exhilarating range of styles-realist, cubist, symbolist, surrealist, abstract, and neo-classical. Among the subjects Picasso covered are portraits of himself, friends, lovers, and children; political commentaries; tributes to great artists of the past; and allegories of the creative process. Photographs documenting Picasso at work are also on view.
