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 have never quite understood surrealism, and thought of the work of Dali and Miro as little more than elegant caricatures, indulgent and even grotesque. The setting and progression of this exhibit made me think differently about these artists, and for the first time, I was able to connect with some of the works of this movement. I was amazed that seeing Soft Construction with Boiled Beans for the second time in my life, it moved me to the point of tears. Thank you for helping me to see this movement in a different way.

I thought that this exhibit was very interesting in the way it allowed comparison as well as contrasting of various Avant-Garde artist of the early 20th century. Nice job.

i loved this exhibit. I personally am not a big fan of cubism and surrealism but the way the works were organized and displayed in chronologic order made the history and story of these movements more interesting and appealing. I also liked how each room and a basic theme, which made it much easier to take in.

really enjoyed the exhibit and the very informative audio accompaniment. One suggestion for future: signage lettering was too small resulting in packing of people trying to read- make the llettering font larger!

THANK YOU FOR THE EXCELLENT ORGANIZATION AND AUDIO DISCUSSION OF THE WORKS. I HAVE BEEN HERE MANY TIMES BEFORE AND LEFT FEELING INCOMPLETE BECAUSE THE WORKS WERE SPREAD OUT IN DIFFERENT COLLECTIONS. THE CURRENT ORGANIZATION IS WONDERFUL AND PERMITS THE VISITOR TO EXPERIENCE PARIS AND THE GENESIS OF MODERN ART.

I enjoyed the exhibit very much and I learned a great deal. My only criticism is that there was no place to rest until far into the exhibit. I have a knee problem and it is necessary to sit and take the pressure off my knee for a short time. I am sure others have similar problems and this should be taken into account in every major exhibition.

I really enjoyed the inividualism of each of the cubist artists in their own light. Picasso was the name of the exhibit but the true focus in my perspective is the advance, fall, and resurection of the cubist era of art in pre - world war 2 and during the time period. The fact that the artists in this exhibit allowed their emotions to influence their art and still make masterpieces is a feet that i believe can never be countered.
