Pablo Picasso at The Art Institute of Chicago February 20th, 2013 - May 12th, 2013

There is no shortage of Pablo Picasso exhibitions in our world right now – a good half-dozen major shows have opened and closed across the U.S. in the past three years, exploring everything from Picasso’s relationship with women to his relationship with other artists.
