Each Monday in September, we will be announcing another artist from our upcoming Masters Exhibit and revealing one of their works that will be present in the gallery during the exhibit. The exhibit will be comprised of six artists who have greatly impacted the development of contemporary art and are collected in museums worldwide. We are pleased to announce that works from these influential artists will be viewable at Sager Reeves Gallery for the entire month of December. In addition, these works can be purchased during the December exhibit, or by private preview arranged prior to December.

Our first artist announcement is Pablo Picasso.

A Spanish expatriate painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist and stage designer, Pablo Picasso (1881–1973) became one of the greatest, most influential artists of the 20th century and the creator (with Georges Braque) of Cubism. A prodigious artist at a young age, he always knew that he was an artist.  “When I was a child, my mother said, ‘If you become a soldier, you’ll be a general. If you become a monk you’ll end up as the pope,'” he recalled. “Instead, I became a painter and wound up as Picasso.”
