Celebrating Pablo Picasso

Register for this Summer 2023 course on the new NYU SPS Academy of Lifelong Learning website.

Pablo Picasso died 50 years ago in 1973. To commemorate his eight-decade career, museums around the world are planning special exhibitions in 2023. While the Metropolitan Museum of Art showcased his contribution to Cubism this past fall, the Guggenheim will focus on a young Picasso in Paris (May to August 2023) and the Brooklyn Museum will look at Picasso through feminist eyes (June to September 2023). From his Blue and Rose periods, through Cubism, Classicism, Surrealism, and his Mediterranean years, no other artist in the 20th century has expressed personal life changes with such stylistic innovations. Together, we will look at his greatest masterpieces from paintings, prints, and drawings to ceramics and sculpture. We will also explore the impact that the tumultuous events of the 20th century such as World War I and II, the Spanish War, and the Korean War had on his art as well as his influence on other artists. Summer 2023 tuition is $799.
