Currently on view at Gagosian’s Chelsea Gallery in New York is “Picasso: Mosqueteros,” one of the first exhibitions in the United States to focus on the late paintings of the artist. The selection of works aims to shed new light on the context and subjects that influenced the artist’s later work. Featuring a large group of important paintings and prints from the collection of Bernard Ruiz-Picasso as well as works from The Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Museo Picasso, Malaga, and various other private collections spanning the years of 1962-1972, the exhibit is the first to display works from Picasso’s later period since the exhibition “Picasso: The Last Years: 1963-1973″ at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in 1984. Such unique images of matadors, musketeers, twisted couples and disturbed women provide a glance into the world of Picasso’s later life.
