About The Event

Members see it first! Presented in the Kelvin and Eleanor Smith Foundation Exhibition Hall, Picasso and Paper explores Pablo Picasso’s prolonged engagement with paper. The exhibition showcases nearly 300 works spanning the artist’s career, Highlights include Femmes a leur toilette, an extraordinarily large collage of cut-and-pasted papers, which will be exhibited for the first time in the United States; outstanding Cubist papiers collés; artist’s sketchbooks, including studies for his best known paintings, including Les Demoiselles d’Avignon; constructed paper guitars from the Cubist and Surrealist periods; and an array of works related to major paintings and sculptural projects. This groundbreaking exhibition is organized by the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Royal Academy of Arts, London, in collaboration with the Musée Picasso, Paris.

Members also receive free exhibition tickets throughout the run of the show. The exhibition is on view from December 8, 2024 through March 23, 2025, at the Cleveland Museum of Art.
