Picasso and his muses in Manitoba

Picasso (1881-1973) will be in Manitoba this summer. Two concurrent exhibits May 13 through August 13 at the Winnipeg Art Gallery will highlight the Spanish-born artist’s work. Drawn from art museums across the country, Picasso in Canada will feature 30 pieces spanning five decades. It’ll include iconic images of five of Picasso’s lovers. Picasso: Man and Beast, The Vollard Suite of Prints is a collection of 100 etchings and drypoints with the themes of love and lust, identity and inspiration. Picasso developed the Suite during his affair with model and muse Marie-Thérèse Walter. The Suite is named after Ambroise Vollard, the art dealer and print publisher who gave Picasso his first Paris exhibit in 1901, and who also commissioned the etchings. Adults $12; students $8, kids under 5 free. wag.ca.
