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?

Some of the paintings were too deep for me. Needs more audio!

Member's preview was way too crowded on saturday. Hard to see the paintings with all the bodies in front of them. This is no way to enjoy the art!

The best exhibit I've seen in a long time. I found the balance of Picasso and other artists just right, and the written and audio commentaries were terrific. I feel like I understand--and like--cubism more than ever before. Bravo! I intend to come again--am hoping to bring colleagues from work to spur a discussion about seeing things in new ways

I thoroughly enjoyed the exhibit. My favorite room was the salmon-pink room with the huge, vibrant paintings. I really don't have a great art background so the audio recordings and the printed information throughout the exhbit help to put the artist in context with history and other artists. It is the thing I like best about the special exhibits here.

Less of a crowed per showing would make this experience more enjoyable in the future. Also, curious why it was named Picasso when clearly there were many other works by different artists included. Nevertheless, it was informative and interesting. ricki

Loved the Cubism before, during and after. I especially liked the more vibrant cubist work--this room was amazing! I enjoyed the fact that Picasso wasn't the only focus. Bravo!

Was interesting, but calling it a "Picasso" exhibit was misleading. There were more Cubist works from other artists then there were from Picasso. And the few Picasso's that were there were not his more famous. That was disappointing. Also, would have liked to see more and learn more about Picasso's days with Surrealism. If you want to learn about Cubism, this is your exhibit.

I was most moved by The Prayer. Thank you.

I was at a preview exhibit and was actually glad for the rather dense crowd, which slowed me down and helped me to linger longer in each room and and at each work. Even though Cubism and Surrealism are not my favorite art movements, I found the entire exhibit engrossing. The audio guide commentary was informative and witty. The commentators "got" the Picasso-Braque connection right; Braque is often underestimated and underrepresented in discussing this period of Picasso's artistic development. The room devoted to the "Salon Cubists" was terrific, a very pleasant surprise. I was not familiar with the work of Charles Demuth, but after getting acquainted with it at this exhibit, I have enjoyed researching him and his art more. I think that is an example of the kinds of outcomes you want from an exhibit like this one. Thank you!

The Picasso exhibit is great. But the member's preview was too crowded on Sat. We wish you would have fewer tickets for each time slot, allowing for a more pleasant experience for members.

Too Little Picasso. Should re-name this The Avant Garde in Paris (and Picasso too)

Over all a very informative exhibit. However it would be better if there was also a child friendly commentary to interest children who are viewing the exhibit with there parents. (like the degas exhibit of a few years ago.) In addition some of the commentary seemed to be cut off in mid thought.

I feel so much more in tune and connected with this art. Picasso, and other artists featured creates a unique understanding of what was going on in the world at their time periods. I enjoyed seeing the invention of cubism and surrealism featurettes. The art museum never fails to impress me and always has surprises around the corner.
