Picasso of the Day - Head of a Woman

Based on inspiration of my recent visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art I have decided to do a Picasso of the Day series. Here is the first installment of that series using cropped photos I took of key paintings that caught my eye....

Head of a Woman - 1960
Information on the Exhibit this summer:

Picasso in The Metropolitan Museum of Art
April 27, 2010–August 15, 2010
Special Exhibition Galleries, 2nd floor

This landmark exhibition is the first to focus exclusively on works by Pablo Picasso (Spanish, 1881–1973) in the Museum's collection. It features three hundred works, including the Museum's complete holdings of paintings, drawings, sculptures, and ceramics by Picasso—never before seen in their entirety—as well as a selection of the artist's prints. The Museum's collection reflects the full breadth of the artist's multi–sided genius as it asserted itself over the course of his long and influential career.
