In partnership with the Barnes Foundation, the Columbus Museum of Art is organizing the exhibition Picasso: Experimentation, Change, and the Great War. Inspired by the Columbus Museum of Art’s 1914–15 Picasso Still Life with Compote and Glass, and the Barnes’s extensive Picasso holdings, the exhibition will be comprised of about 45 works from American and European museums and private collections. With special emphasis upon the tumultuous years of the First World War, this exhibition focuses upon the artist’s oeuvre from 1912 to 1924 during which time Picasso utilized both cubist and classical modes in his art. Picasso’s shifts in style became a means of not repeating, in his words, “the same vision, the same technique, the same formula.”
