Museum of Fine Arts Welcomes Picasso Into Collection

Museum of Fine Arts Welcomes Picasso Into Collection

The Washington County Museum of Fine Arts proudly announced the major gift of a distinguished print by Pablo Picasso (1881-1973). Grand Nu de Femme, a linocut made in 1962, is the first work by the great Spanish modernist to enter the museum's collection. Mr. James R. Donnelley of Chicago, Illinois, is giving this important print in honor of his wife, Nina Herrmann Donnelley, and her parents, Phillip and Sarah Herrmann. The Herrmanns lived in Hagerstown, Maryland, for many years. In Grand Nu de Femme Picasso created an energetic rendering of a monumental female nude. The image takes a cubist approach that shows the subject from multiple view points at the same time, therefore the figure appears to have two faces looking in different directions. This print is number 14 from a relatively small edition of 50 prints.
