In what’s being billed as a major survey of his work, the Art Gallery of Ontario is set to present a selection of the works of Pablo Picasso next year.
The show, “Picasso: Masterpieces from the Musee National Picasso, Paris” is made-up of more than 150 works the artist kept in his personal collection over the course of his illustrious 75-year career.
The works include paintings, drawings, sculptures and prints.
Some highlights include “The Matador,” painted in 1970, just three years before Picasso’s death, the 1907 painting “Les Demoiselles d’Avignon” which led to the invention of cubism and “The Death of Casagemas,” one of the first works he created in Paris in 1901.
Many of the works showcase Picasso’s various mistresses and muses.
The exhibition is on a world tour, while the Musee National Picasso, Paris undergoes renovation.
The exhibition will be at the AGO beginning April 28 through August 26, 2012.
Other stops on the tour include Madrid, Abu Dhabi, Tokyo, Moscow, Seattle, San Francisco and Sydney.
