On loan and view at the El Paso Public Library Judge Marquez Branch
Through June 8, 2008

Picasso’s Women seeks to analyze the bond between his lovers and how they are uniquely represented through prints from the El Paso Museum of Art’s extensive collection given by Phyllis Bounds in 1986. Known for his innovations in Cubism, Picasso commonly exploited his lovers as subjects. This exhibition only represents a small portion of his lovers but it highlights some of his more influential and long-term relationships. From these images, one can attain a sense of Picasso’s personal perception of these women through specific attributes.
