Pardon our dust while we update this corner of the website.


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?

Absolutely the best exhibit I have seen in a long time. Going in, I thought it was probably a "throwaway", just a way to attract a crowd and press. Leaving, it strikes me as comprehensive, thoughtful, and very-well produced. I was amazed at all the work in the Art Museum's collection that we never get to see. What a pity!

The connection between all the artists was phenomenal. The artwork beautifully illuminated but because of crowds we had to stand slightly away from the works and thus had difficulty reading the signs.

CUBISM IS ABSOLUTELY FASCINATING! I COULD LOOK AT THESES PAINTING FOR HOURS TRYING TO GET A GLIMPSE OF THE SAME VISION THAT THE OFFICE HAD. SURREALISM IS STRANGE BIT ENTICNING.

Usually I am not a huge fan of Picasso because ever since I was a little kid I had ALWAYS heard and seen Picasso's work. This past semester I took a History of Modern Art class that went into the artist in depth and oh my goodness, such a difference in how I viewed him and his work. I knew about his contributions in cubism and surrealism (both some of my favorite periods of art history) but after going through this exhibit, I have begun to appreciate him and his art/fellows even more. Thank you once again for exhibiting another yet fantastic exhibit showing the never-before-seen art from someone who I had personally felt I knew everything about already. As usual, the museum did another fantastic job!!! Keep up the good work. In the future, some exhibits on Warhol, Duchamp, Klee and Kardinsky would be phenomenal!!!

I liked the way that all of the artwork had a different style within' it. It was great to see the different artists who inspired Picasso.

It was a very interesting exhibit, but I would have liked to see more Picasso paintings and ones that were from his younger years.

I thought the exhibit was fabulous! The evolution of Picasso's work through war; the call for innovation; significant cultural change was inspiring. Many thanks for bringing this exhibit to Philadelphia.

picasso's work was influenced by the people of the african continent...it is a disappointment to me in a city that boasts a significant population of people who bear african heritage, that this commentary makes no reference. please from now on attempt to comment from a view that is not so narrowly and traditionally framed.

AS WITH GORKEY EXHIBITING PICASO WITH HIS CONTEMPORARIES ADDED TO THE UNDERSTANDING OF THE ART MOVEMENT OF HIS TIME. OTHERS HAVE CRITICIZED NOT ENOUGH PICASO HOWEVER AN EXHIBIT EXCLUSIVELY OF HIS WORK WOULD NOT HAVE HAD THE RICHNESS THIS EXHIBIT DISPLAYED. GREAT JOB WONDERFUL

Its great that PMA can obtain these collections and collate them into an exhibit. It is indeed interesting to see other artists of that time, and also how they influenced each other during the process of development of the cubism and surrealism years. It really takes a generation to develop a new class of paintings (since as humans we try and "box" similar things into categories). It is wonderful to see the transition from 1900 - 1950.What art for evolution are we in now?

thank you for this extensive elaboration of the themes common to their day and times. I am glad to have the historic context in which these artists worked.

PLEASE DISCOURAGE CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 4. IT IS UNFAIR TO THE CHILDREN AND THEIR PARENTS NOT TO MENTION THOSE OF US TRYING TO ENJOY THE AMBIANCE THAT THE MUSEUM WAS TRYING TO CREATE.
