Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Pablo Picasso worked for three months in a makeshift garage-studio in Fontainebleau (France), where he created masterpieces in the style of cubism and classicism. For the first time since then, these works were reunited in the exhibition “Picasso in Fontainebleau” at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).
The exhibition “Picasso in Fontainebleau” is organized in chronological order, describing the summer of 1921, spent by the artist in Fontainebleau.
Picasso’s studio that summer was a garage space measuring 6 by 3 meters. Using the exact dimensions of the garage, MoMA created a replica of it so museum visitors could look inside and imagine how such large paintings could be created in a small space.

In this garage, Picasso created the cubist painting “Three Musicians” with multi-colored geometric figures, as well as the classical painting “Three Women at the Spring” with references to Greco-Roman antiquity.

“Picasso: A Cubist Commission in Brooklyn” is the second in a series of specialized research exhibitions dedicated to Picasso in New York.
In 1910, Pablo Picasso began completing a commission to decorate the Brooklyn residence of the artist, collector and critic Hamilton Easter Field, whom he had met in Paris the year before. According to the artist’s plan, the walls of Field’s home library were to be decorated with eleven panels, forming an enveloping aesthetic whole. This project gave Picasso his first opportunity to move beyond easel painting and apply his radical Cubist style to decorative paintings of complex size and proportions.
The exhibition presented for the first time this little-known chapter of Picasso’s Cubist period.
When: 09/14/2023 – 01/14/2024
