Picasso’s privates

Picasso himself once said “I am the greatest collector of Picassos in the world.” Decide for yourself if that’s fact or fiction at Picasso: Masterpieces from the Musée National Picasso, Paris, May 1 through August 26 at Toronto’s Art Gallery of Ontario** (AGO). The “major survey of masterworks” includes more than 150 drawings, paintings and sculptures from Paris’ Musée National Picasso, currently under reno and home to more than 5000 Picasso works that the Spanish artist saved for himself and his loved one over the course of his career. Exhibited chronologically, highlights include his 1906 self-portrait and another, The Matador, that he painted in 1970, three years before his death. There are also paintings of his muses and mistresses including 1918’s Portrait of Olga in an Armchair (Picasso’s first wife and a Russian ballerina) and 1954’s Jacqueline with Crossed Hands (his second wife). The AGO is the only Canadian venue to host the exhibit after a 10-city tour that included Abu Dhabi, Moscow and Tokyo. Adults $19.50, kids 6 to 17 and students $11, under 5 free. (877) 225-4246;
