Picasso's Drawings, 1890-1921, follows the dazzling development of the artist's drawing practice from the precocious academic exercises of his youth to his renewal of classicism in his virtuoso output of the early 1920s. A selection of more than seventy works on paper, with extended entries, highlights his stylistic experiments and techniques during this roughly thirty-year period, which begins and ends in a classical mode and encompasses his most radical innovations. Discussions of Picasso's style, sources, and techniques demonstrate how drawing served as an essential means of invention and discovery for the artist.
