Three Picasso paintings hanging on a wall

The Ackland is delighted to host this special presentation of three powerful paintings by Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) from the distinguished collection of Julian H. Robertson Jr. (B.A. ’55). The paintings, from 1938, 1943, and 1965, come from very different periods of Picasso’s long, productive, and versatile career, but they are united by a focus on the human head as a locus not only of powerful emotions, but also of painterly and compositional challenges. This exhibition has been made possible by the generosity of the Ackland National Advisory Board.
