Picasso Landscapes: Out of Bounds in Cincinnati

In the context of the “Picasso Celebration 1973-2023,” this exhibition explores Pablo Picasso’s deep engagement with landscape subjects and his expansive approach to this traditional genre.

The year 2023 marks the 50th anniversary of the death of Pablo Picasso (1881–1973), perhaps the most innovative and influential artist of the 20th century. The Cincinnati Art Museum is celebrating his legacy with the first exhibition to examine Picasso’s lifelong engagement with landscape. Picasso Landscapes: Out of Bounds brings paintings and sculptures by the artist from some 25 public and private collections across the United States and Europe.

Picasso used landscape throughout his life to establish himself in new surroundings and to push forward into new styles of painting and sculpture. Picasso Landscapes: Out of Bounds traces the elemental role of place, environment, and interface between humanity and the natural world in his art. Through representations of landscape, Picasso advanced dialogues with key artists of the previous centuries, from Nicolas Poussin to Paul Cézanne, embedding himself within the European painting tradition, while insisting on a status apart.
