Sketches by Picasso at AIC

I visited the Picasso in Chicago exhibit at the Art Institute of Chicago this week.  Awe-inspiring, of course. Galleries upon galleries filled with all things Picasso from all stages of his career.  I have observed his paintings often at the AIC.  So I was particularly intrigued by his sketches, drawings and studies.  It is wonderful and eye-opening to peek into the creation process of a great artist.  And these works fulfill that wish for me.  I snapped some quick images and placed them here. Picasso in Chicago closes on May 12 -- so hurry if you want to see it.
A still life.
