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?

WONDERFUL EXHIBIT, beautifully rendered. I learned an enormous amount about Picasso and his circle. THe audio tour was the best I've ever heard, and I've been going to exhibits for 35 years. Well worth the trip from Connecticut. Kudos to all who put this together.

As an admirer of artistry on many levels..of many forms, this exhibit displayed a movement in the art world in which the evolution of cubism, surrealism, etc... and the artists whose works made a great impression in Paris and throughout the world has been wonderfully demonstrated, explained/illustrated. It is, certainly, never to late to be educated. Thank you, Philadelphia Museum of Art et al.

Even though many of the works came from the museum collection, it was informative and enjoyable to see them displayed differently. The exhibit had a wonderful flow to it.

I thoroughly enjoyed this exhibit. It was much superior to the Cezzane showing last year. Rita gave it 7 out of 10 stars. I give it a 9 out of 10.

I appreciated seeing Picasso in context with his fellow artists in Paris at that time. The inclusion of women and African Americans is an important acknowledgement in the past rarely made.

The ideas behind cubism and picasso's art are much more significant to me than the art itself. It is the throwing away of tradition and the embracing of radical ideas that is significant to me

The audio tour and integration of multiple artists' work in chronological order allows the non-art scholar to more fully grasp the interplay and interdependence of artists on each other. The traditional fashion of displaying only a single artist's work in an exhibition underplays the larger conversation in which almost all artists and indeed professionals of all types take part. Nice work!

Whoever inspired the display layout for the red salon room -- cubism display -- should be given high praise. And the framing is so beautiful. I think the "Violin" by Juan Gris should have more prominence, or maybe hung on one of the blue walls. All in all a wonderful exhibit -- but should have more historical context -- especially the war years. The political views of the cubists and surrealists are their essence. There is so much potential for utilizing the anti-fascist, anti-war and anti-capitalist views of the artists. And could be a little larger exhibit. Thanks.

It was a very intriguing exhibition. I appreciated the dialogue between the exhibited artists evident in their works. I found it interesting to see a work by Max Weber included in the exhibition. While I find value in the contributions of Picasso, overall I am not a fan of his works. His aesthetics are harsh, cold and extremely fragmented. I do however appreciate his intent on demonstrating that there is more than one perception of reality and the validity of that principle. This exhibit however confirms that he was a complex man with contradictions and strong political interests in creating the Cubist movement.

Avant-garde was the very first subject during my 3-year art history lessons at La Sorbonne. It makes you know clearly where you're located in the history, a good starting point for doing all kinds of art practices.This exhibition recalls a lot to me. Happy that we got a world class museum in our city.
