Visitors after 5 p.m. will also enjoy half-price admission to the ticketed exhibition. Many of Picasso's masterpieces----including The Old Guitarist and Nude under a Pine Tree----are on view.        

The Age of Picasso and Matisse: Modern Masters from the Art Institute of Chicago is organized by the Art Institute of Chicago and the Kimbell Art Museum, Fort Worth. Presenting sponsorship for the exhibition is provided by the Leo Potishman Foundation and J.P.
