About the Class

Now celebrated as one of art history’s geniuses, Pablo Picasso still had to start somewhere. Looking closely at early works by Picasso—from his Blue Period to the cubist compositions—we will explore and contextualize this iconic artist’s beginnings and consider the role his canvases play in the Barnes collection.
