STATES OF MIND

PICASSO THE LINE

Picasso Lithographs 1945-1960 The Norton Simon Museum presents States of Mind: Picasso Lithographs 1945–1960, a revelatory exhibition exploring Pablo Picasso’s prolific work in the medium of lithography. Drawing from the Norton Simon Museum’s holdings of more than 700 Picasso prints—among the deepest collections of its kind anywhere in the world—States of Mind traces the evolution of the artist’s individual compositions from the 1940s and 1950s through multiple states, subtle adjustments and radical revisions. The 86 prints on view, many presented for the first time in 40 years, give viewers a rare chance to encounter this groundbreaking body of work by one of history’s most celebrated artists.

Featuring 70 of Pablo Picasso’s line drawings, Picasso The Line investigates the artist’s attempts to portray three-dimensional forms on a two-dimensional sheet of paper, thus relinquishing perspective. The exhibition features works from both public and private collections, some of which have never before been seen in the U.S. or are otherwise seldom released from the Menil Collection’s holdings. The works span a wide range of mediums, from pen or pencil to charcoal and collage. A fully-illustrated catalogue accompanies the exhibition, which is curated by Carmen Giménez, guest curator and founding director of the Museo Picasso Málaga, and managed by Clare Elliott, associate curator at the Menil.
