Image: Pablo Picasso, Pedro Maach, 1901 Pablo Picasso's impact on the history of modern art has been profound. His early development was complex and innovative, constituting a subject of surprising depth. This exhibition is the first comprehensive survey of Picasso's art before cubism, from the academic and realist work of his youth to his emergence as a brilliant stylist in late 1906.

151 paintings, drawings, and sculptures created early in Pablo Picasso's career, prior to the advent of cubism, were chosen from the Gallery's collection with loans from other public and private collections.
