"The Gallery's first exhibition devoted to Picasso's (1881–1973) drawings presents their development over a 30-year period through some 55 works--from the precocious academic exercises of his youth in the 1890s to the virtuoso works of the early 1920s, including the radical innovations of cubism and collage. The selection focuses on major examples borrowed from American and European collections."
