Visiting an exhibition in person is a much richer experience than visiting online.

The general public saw Cubist artworks for the first time at that annual exhibition in Paris, what are your reactions to these paintings and sculpture nearly a century later? What was your favorite gallery in the exhibition and why? Which works of art impressed you the most and the least?

I enjoyed the collection, the private tours in the midist of our scheduled tour sometimes took up the entire gallerery and were distracting

I loved it. Kinda boring. Art isn't my thang. But I loved it. That's all that matters.

I am working on a series of experimental drawings and this show inspired me regarding the use of collage and mixed media.

Numbers need to be BIGGER. Why no exhibition catalog?

The early self-portrait of Picasso also seems to me to show his awareness of himself as a Southern European-Spanish/Catalan, short, a little brown compared to the French towards the north, muscular-identifying with those who work or fish, but wonder if anyone agrees.

This has given me a new appreciation of cubism and I miss my friend Arnaldo Miccoli a cubist who is still creating.

This was a SWEET Exhibit! I like Picasso! But there are a few other artists on display here and those are the ones I really loved! You should come and check this out!

This was quite an experience. Would have liked to see more Piccasso than other artists. I enjoyed it greatly.

The sculptures during the second World War war very interesting considering the thought and time put in. They represented the hardships faced and did it well.

I though It was interesting to see the art coming up at the same time as Picasso. It was interesting that a lot of the pieces that I liked the most were not Picasso. I would love to come back and explore more.

i'm astounded at the great breadth and depth of our museum's collection--just from this group and period(s). When economic times are adverse, the PMA can avoid exorbitant expenditure by dipping into its own holdings. We have seen this done to great effect at least once before. I enjoyed the way in which the exhibition started out "thin" and slowly built, with repetitions and new material, from there. There was a great deal to learn from this presentation of works. Great!

We came to see the Rocky Steps, and the Rocky Statue. We were scheduled to fly to Italy last week, however the great volcanic eruption in Iceland grounded flights to Europe. How wonderfully thankful I am to happen upon the Picasso exhibit. Beautifully done; I learned much; and now will continue my art studies that were forgotten years ago.Thank you to the Philadelphia Art Museum for this glorious exhibit.

by the time I got to the final room, I was hungry and tired. It may be due to that, or it may be due to over-stimulation, but by the time I reached Picasso's sculpture "Man with Lamb" (which I had never seen even in photos), I burst into tears. It was a wonderful (if overwhelming) exhibit. Thank you.
