We're Off To See Picasso!

Good morning from Applejack Lane!  Tomorrow morning, Cathy and I are off to see the Pablo Picasso exhibit at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond.  This exhibit contains a 176 piece collection of Picasso's favorites in ten galleries of the newly renovated VMFA.  The exhibit opened February 19 and will close on May 15 before it moves on to San Francisco.  It is remarkable that this collection is only going to be shown in seven cities worldwide, and Richmond ended up being the only one on the East Coast to have it.   The VMFA recently completed a $150 million upgrade, and this entered into the decision made in France to include Richmond on the tour. This is a once in the lifetime opportunity!                                                                  

"Painting is just another way of keeping a diary," once commented Picasso. I guess we are going to have a chance to see Picasso's diary!
Do you know why this lady has two noses?

Enjoy your visit. I believe this is actually two people -- one behind the other...what do you think?
