Pablo Picasso’s engagement with paper is the subject of the exhibition Picasso and Paper, organized by the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Royal Academy of Arts, London, in collaboration with the Musée national Picasso-Paris.
The exhibition will feature nearly 300 works in a variety of media, including drawings, prints, photographs, sketchbooks, collages, cut-outs, and paper sculpture, as well as works in oil on canvas and cast bronze, showcasing Picasso’s exploration of working on and with paper. The Cleveland Museum of Art is the exhibition’s only North American venue.
Among the highlights are:
Femmes à leur toilette of 1937–38, a collage of cut-and-pasted papers, which will be exhibited in the U.S. for the first time in 40 years;
outstanding Cubist papiers collés; artist’s sketchbooks, including studies for Les Demoiselles d’Avignon;
constructed paper guitars from Picasso’s Cubist and Surrealist periods;
an array of works related to major paintings and sculptural projects.
