On the 30th November… yes it’s been a week or so already, some friends and I took ourselves in to Sydney AU to visit the Picasso exhibition at the Art Gallery of NSW.
It was a very sticky humid rainy and sunny day… licorice allsorts weather!
This exhibition was very timely for me (and my friends) as we had only just finished a brief on cubism in Acrylic painting in our art course.
When I think of Cubism, Picasso comes straight to mind, particularly paintings of ‘his people’ with their strangely featured faces.
Of course he didn’t only create cubist style artworks… He was a master of so many styles.
It was amazing to be there viewing some of his work. He was a prolific artist in his lifetime with some 50000+ artworks? We were fortunate to view some 150+ artworks including, Sculptures, Drawings, Printmaking, Painting of course and so much more.
There was also a video showing Pablo Picasso creating… It was a clever visual as we looked at Picasso through glass so that he was facing us… so intriguing and interesting.
The Art Gallery of NSW has a series of podcasts talking about Picasso and some of these artworks.
Definitely worth a listen.

There were many beautiful works… some were classicly realistic in style, while others were uniquely Picasso as we know him.
There were a few favourites for me on the day. Ones that really caught my eye and appealed to the artist in me. They were:
It was a great day wandering with friends and visiting with Picasso at the Art Gallery.
