The work of Pablo Picasso, arguably one of the most famous artists in the world, is coming to Richmond this weekend.
The much anticipated Picasso exhibit, “Picasso: Masterpieces from the Musee National Picasso, Paris” opens on Saturday, Feb. 19 at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
Richmond is the second U.S. stop on the exhibit’s seven-city international tour and the only stop on the East Coast. The exhibit will be on display until May 15 when it leaves for San Francisco.
Over 176 works from Picasso’s personal collection will be featured and the exhibit covers every major period in his career. The exhibit will include paintings, drawings and sculptures from the artist’s private collection. Expect to see classic works like “Portrait of Dora Maar” (pictured) and “Celestina (The Woman with One-Eye).”
Tickets run $20 (free for VMFA members and kids 6 and under and $16 for seniors). You can purchase tickets at the museum or by going here.
To the Bottom and Back Bus will also be offering free rides to the VMFA on Saturday from now through the run of the exhibit.
