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 really liked the exhibit. my favorite painting was the one with the green chair. it was cool to see all the stuff from picasso and the painters who followed them. thnx.

An interesting exhibit, but I expected more Picasso, including some from his Blue Period, which I consider one of his best. An exhibit at the Nat'l Gallery of Art in DC surpassed this

Usually am not a fan on art museums but I found this exhibit interesting. I just wish that there were more audio for the paintings so the crowds wouldnt all gather at one or two paintings in the entire room.Go Buffs!

The works of art in this exhibit are beautiful; however, I would have loved to see more works from Picasso himself.

Be prepared to compete with crowds to get a glimpse of the art on display. Beautiful exhibit but very difficult to enjoy. If you can, arrange a private tour.

The exhibit was great and very information. It took you through all of the different eras of cubism so that you felt like you really understood what was going on at that time.I enjoyed seeing Picasso and the many artists that he influenced at that time.

Second rate as usual for the Phila Museum of Art. Paintings behind glass? Come on, how amateurish. Not happy that I joined as a member to see this exhibit. The line to enter the exhibit was unmarked -- this after the exhibit is open for several weeks? And WHY do you give people audio tours?? That just causes congestion at the predictable spots throughout the exhibit. Yuck.

When I walked into the exhibit, the words of a friend that 'cubism wasn't for him' were echoing in my head. I looked at the abstract drawings and I was bored. As the exhibit progressed, the paintings became increasingly more complex and lively and diverse. I was drawn into the excitement of the Cubism movement, with works from Picasso to Miro to artists I am going to have to look up when I return home. To conclude, the journey through the Cubism exhibit started slow and gained momentum and life. Amazing paintings. Incredible legacies. I was humbled. To think about the art and to realize that they were created by someone who is most likely long passed away but still very much alive in the work

As usual, the Philadelphia Museum of Art shows that it always has top notch collections and that the people of this city are privileged to have it.I so appreciate all of the families and collectors that lend their precious works for all of us to view. Thank you so much. My life and my family are touched by being able to see these priceless treasures.

Salon was quite impressive. A unique experience to see the impact pf cubism on modern commercial art. Fantastic to learn of the relationships shared between all of these great artists. Did no know Picasso never set foot in the USA

i really like the different type of art work that was presented. There was certainly a combination of pain, joy with compilation of music intervals. i enjoyed it thoroughly!!!!
