Landmark Exhibition of Iconic Works from Every Phase of Picasso's Career Leaves Seattle in Less Thank Two Weeks
People look on at "Acrobat" during a media preview at the Seattle Art Museum of "Picasso: Masterpieces from the Musee National Picasso, Paris", in Seattle. The exhibition of essential works from Pablo Picasso's personal collection is making its U.S. debut in Seattle that includes paintings, drawings, sculptures and etchings by the artist and serves as a retrospective covering each notable artistic period of his eight-decade career. The touring exhibit was made possible because the Paris museum is undergoing a $28 million renovation that won't be complete until 2012. AP Photo/Elaine Thompson.
SEATTLE, WA.- There are less than two weeks left to see the Seattle Art Museum’s (SAM) Picasso: Masterpieces from the Musée National Picasso, Paris. What The Stranger calls “one of the best [Picasso show’s] you’ll ever see outside Paris”, the exhibition displays more than 150 original works of art, including 75 major paintings and sculptures. More than 300,000 visitors from Seattle and across the country have seen the exhibition, which is poised to become the biggest and most ambitious show ever on view at SAM.

As a final farewell to the exhibition and to accommodate the large number to visitors to the “not-to-miss-show” of the year, Seattle Art Museum is extending its hours for the duration of the exhibit, as well as remaining open on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Museum hours during the final days of the exhibition are:

January 7-9: 10am-9pm
January 10: Open to SAM Members only, noon-9 pm
Final Weekend (January 14-16): 10am-midnight
Final Day (Martin Luther King Jr. Day, January 17): 10am-9pm

The unparalleled opportunity to present this work is possible at this time because the Musée Picasso has recently closed for renovations, allowing a global tour of this full-scale survey to travel for the first and, very likely, the only time. The presentation at SAM is the US debut of these works which follows the Atheneum Art Museum in Helsinki, Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow and the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia. SAM has worked closely with Anne Baldassari, Director of the Musée National Picasso and general curator of the exhibition, to create a highly memorable exhibition that not only highlights outstanding works from its collection, but tells a compelling story about the artist’s development and undeniable impact on modern art history.
