Picasso Left A Mark On The World!

Pablo Picasso, a Spanish painter and sculptor, is renowned for co-founding Cubism and revolutionizing modern art. His prolific career spanned over 70 years, you heard that right... 70 YEARS!

Pablo Picasso left a mark on the world and now we are excited to see what kind of mark his work leaves on the Evansville Region. The Evansville Museum is presenting a permanent home for Pablo Picasso’s "Seated Woman in Red Hat." The exhibition space will include several Picasso prints and one ceramic piece by the artist, also in the Museum’s permanent collection. There are only two glass Picasso pieces on display in the United States, and we're lucky to be the permanent home to one of them! 

Currently on display at the Evansville Museum of Arts, History and Science are 24 prints by Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) on loan from the John Szoke Gallery in New York City. Renowned for his paintings and sculpture, Pablo Picasso also is arguably one of the greatest printmakers of the 20th century. He created thousands of printed images, working in intaglio techniques, lithography and linoleum cut.
