Picasso Exhibit at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts

Last Wednesday I went to Richmond, Virginia to deliver a painting to my sister and while I was there, I went to a special exhibit of Picasso's work at the VMFA. There are over 170 of his works in this exhibit from The Musee National Picasso in Paris! The works are those from his personal collection that were donated by his heirs to France, where a museum was opened in 1985. There are works from all phases of his artistic life, even some etchings! I enjoyed seeing his photographs of his studio and friends. The two pictures I'm showing here are my favorite paintings in the show. I saw a lot of paintings of women's heads - some very strange ones!
I loved reading the French titles of the works like "La Tete d'une Femme". :-)
