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?

What a wealth of treasures that this museum has as well as the City of Philadelphia that this exhibit could be put together from works that are already in residence here. I feel very lucky to live here. We need to regard our city as an important place to visit not just to live in. Thanks!

Fantastic and informative, especially concerning the impact of a turbulent Europe in and around Picasso's Life and those of his colleagues. Would have liked to see more -- i.e. works from White Period and Blue Period. Overall one of the best exhibits on the artist encountered.

This exhibition was entitled Picasso! But really it should have been called CUBISM!!!! Saying that I did enjoy it.

Having already completed a research project on Picasso, I came into this exhibition knowing what to expect. While I never really thought Cubism to be visually appealing, the concept behind it and the influences that Picasso used to create his works of art made his art movement respectable and interesting to study. I thought the exhibit did well in providing background information on Picasso's pieces. Furthermore, I liked how the exhibit included other works of Cubism by other artists; it gave viewers a better sense of diversity behind this avant-gard movement.

The art work presented this evening was very unique and they each shared distict relations with other peices in the collection. Some of the paintings which were in the style of Cubism were nothing more than...Mediocre at best. However you have to give the man some respect, he did bring in a entirly new genre of painting and drawing. Was it hyped? a bit...But overall Great Stuffglad i cameyeah pretty much

sad to see all these patrons stuck in their virtual audio world! Does Art need explanation? If you need instructions how to feel when facing ART, perhaps you should stick to watching reruns of Law and Order and/or watch baseball games.

Very enjoyable show lots of knowledge about the Cubist movement and it's impact. I think it was too crowded in our time slot. Also parking was a problem, we are sustainers and still had to pay at the garage, no parking when we arrived at the museum, and then they opened it later. Sort of confusing.

Overall a very good exhibit but OVERCROWDED! How does one even begin to look at a Cubist painting with a mob of hungry day trippers hovering over every Picasso and bleating nonsense that they've just misread from the information panel. Also WAY TOO many children. Enlightened parents: just because children's admission is free doesn't mean you should bring them along. I want to see a Braque not a brat!!!

THE LIGHTS GLARE DOWN ON CERTAIN PAINTINGS IN THE SALON CUBISM GALLERY.REST OF THE EXHIBITION IS A VERY NICE AND COMPLETE DEPICTION OF PICASSO'S CONTRIBUTION TO ART.

I thoroughly enjoyed the exhibit. It was nice to see a familiar face (the three musicians), the first i saw at MoMA. "The Prayer" touched my heart, and "The Man with the Lamb" made me think. All together the experimenting these artists have done made an impact on the art i make today! One thing I'm a little upset about the lack of the art of Diego Rivera, who from what I read followed in the cubist movement with Picasso. Altogether, i had a really good time!

It was very enlightening to understand the growth and journey that was portrayed in this exhibit of Picasso. I found it almost a relief to know that in turn of the century Paris, like today, the cubist work was not generally accepted and it took works that were somewhat watered-down in the 'Salons' before the style really was able to become what it is today. I also enjoyed the expression of these works in relation to the surrealist movements. a relation i never would have put together on my own, but with the guidance am realizing is very much a part of surrealism. Great exhibit, great audio. thanks. A.

It was very obvious that they were stoned out of their heads when they started this 'Cubism' thing. C'mon people!

It is very interesting that Mother Africa is the influence in so many works of art, music, dance, etc. We need to all give more credit to the origins of creativity!
