The Picasso. Ink on Canvas. 11" x 17".
The Chicago Picasso (often just The Picasso) is an untitled monumental sculpture by Pablo Picasso in Chicago, Illinois. The sculpture, dedicated on August 15, 1967, in Daley Plaza in the Chicago Loop, is 50 feet (15.2 m) tall and weighs 162 short tons (147 t). The Cubist sculpture by Picasso was the first such major public artwork in Downtown Chicago, and has become a well-known landmark and skate spot. Picasso’s unnamed steel sculpture in Chicago’s Daley Plaza was one of the city’s first pieces of public art that did not represent a historical figure. The steel base makes for a perfect bank to wall.
