If you think there’s nothing new to see when it comes to Pablo Picasso, then you haven’t seen the Met’s new exhibit—which encompasses the museum’s entire collection of Picasso works all together for the first time. Opening today, “Picasso in the Metropolitan Museum of Art” includes 300 paintings, drawings, sculptures and prints, from the stills and geometric shapes of his cubist period to his abstract portraits.
