The National Gallery of Art recently acquired an early bronze cast of Head of a Woman (Fernande), the culmination of the Fernande series. An icon of early modernism, it is the first example of Picasso's work in sculpture that reflects serious formal experimentation. By seizing a single extended moment in the development of cubism and presenting it comprehensively, this exhibition and the accompanying catalogue allows us to examine Picasso's working process in rare depth.
