Extended to Dec. 29
The Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art really wants you to see this painting. On loan from the St Louis Art Museum in Missouri, Woman in the Studio is a cubist masterpiece by the man best associated with the abstraction and style of the controversial, early-20th century art movement. The work by Pablo Picasso is on exhibit at the museum on the University of Oklahoma campus, 555 Elm Ave., in Norman. The piece was placed on exhibit late last summer and originally intended for display for about a year. Now the date has been pushed to Dec. 29, affording more opportunity to view in person a work by Picasso re-examining in his latter years a style he helped develop as a young, unknown artist. Admission to the Fred Jones Jr. Museum is free, and hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday (open until 9 p.m. Thursday) and 1-5 p.m. Sunday.
