About the Class

“When I was a child, my mother said to me, ‘If you become a soldier, you’ll become a general. If you become a monk, you’ll end up as the Pope.’ Instead, I became a painter and wound up as Picasso.”

Pablo Picasso’s contribution to the history of art is practically immeasurable. More than a century after cubism, we are still unpacking his extraordinary career. Over the course of four weeks, we will immerse ourselves in Picasso’s work, tracing key moments in his oeuvre and highlighting his impact on his contemporaries.
