UVA art history professor Lydia Gasman spent countless hours studying, annotating, and deconstructing Modernist artwork and was a leading expert on Pablo Picasso. She was known for her unrivaled vision into the artist’s world, and amassed an enormous collection of analytic works. “Picasso, Lydia and Friends” pays tribute to Gasman’s passionate contributions with an exhibit and launch of an archive where Picasso prints will be on display alongside the brilliant notes by this venerable art scholar.

Through 9/30. Les Yeux du Monde, 851 Wolf Trap Rd. 973-5566. Read more about this story.
