Pablo Picasso is going to have his work showcased at the Art Gallery of Ontario

Over 150 masterpieces by Pablo Picasso will be displayed at the Art Gallery Of Ontario (AGO) in Toronto.

For the first time since 1964, works from Picasso's private collections will be displayed for the public at the AGO beginning May 1 and running through August 26. These works are on loan from the Musée National Picasso in Paris, France.

Born in Spain on October 25, 1881, Picasso was taking art lessons from his father, an art teacher, by the time he was seven years old. He demonstrated his genious early and became an internationally renowned artist.

It's been over 45 years since a Picasso show of this magnitude has been in Canada. In 1964 an exhibition called “Picasso and Man” was opened for five weeks and drew more than 106,000 people.
