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?

too many paintings from Philadelphia Museum of Art. Would have like to incorporated paintings from other locations

It's always great looking at these works in a different context, even if many are familiar from the permanent collection....one thing I missed: among all of the variations of Cubism on view here, I didn't see a mention or work by the Purists, either Jeanneret or other contributors to this movement. It's another aspect of Cubism that would have made sense had it been included in the post-WWI galleries. Otherwise, a(nother) thoroughly enjoyable Friday evening

This was a wonderful exhibit. In my 9th grade "Studio in Art" course (1967ish) I had to choose a art style and do a study on it. I choose Cubism. It brought back lots of memories seeing Picasso, Braque and Miro again. Very nicely done.

I really enjoyed picasso's sketches it is rare to get the opportunity to see them up close. Also loved the dali painting at the end.

Although I find Picasso's work intriguing, his sketches are way too underrated...more sketches should be displayed!

I really liked the exhibit! The audio part was the best - I liked having some of the background, etc. explained on tape instead of written next to the piece. (Also, Michael Taylor's accent is awesome and really fun to listen to). I wish that the art was displayed more chronologically, so you could see what different artists were doing at the same time next to each other, and understand the history much better. The exhibit was awesome! :-)

I enjoyed the exhibit. I definitely learned a lot more about Picasso, and the styles of cubism and surrealism, than I think I could have learned simply from the internet. I enjoyed looking at the artwork, but it was a bit crowded. There were some really nice pieces in the collection, such as The City, and The Hunter. Also, Michael Taylor, one of the guides on the audio tour, has an amazing accent. ;)

Pretty informative, especially the section on the influence of Cubism on the precursors to surrealism. I believe there could have been a section devoted to his experimentation into the different realms of artistic creativity, not just the cubism, but also Dada, surrealism and the movements thereafter. I feel that it would also benefit the audience to have a labeled section to show what he sent over to the Armory Show to promote the advance of art in America and what his contemporaries as well as American counterparts were creating around the same period.

Way too crowded. I am not sure how you can enjoy the art when it is virtually impossible to look at it head on without being bumped or jostled. As a member, this was a profound disappointment. I have been exhibitions in NYC and all over then world and never have I had an experience in which I simply left in defeat.

A great exhibit! The Philadelphia Museum of Art is a jewel. We are so glad we are members. We took my 7-year-old daughter to the exhibit and it was a wonderful day for all of us. Can't wait for Renoir!

It's a shame that Gris had to die so soon. Great exhibition.
