Visit the Ulrich Museum of Art at Wichita State University through Nov. 28 to see a painting by one of the world's most famous artists. Here are the details:
1) The painting is " Femme et fillettes" (Woman and maidens), an oil painted by Pablo Picasso in 1961. It features Picasso's second wife and last muse, Jacqueline Roque, whom he met in 1953 and married in 1961. At her side are two young figures who are presumed to be Paloma Picasso and Catherine Hutin-Blay, the young daughters of Picasso and Roque.
2) The painting, which measures about four by five feet, was loaned to the museum by an anonymous lender . It will be on view in the museum's first-floor gallery during regular hours until Nov. 28. No photography or videotaping of the painting will be allowed.
3) The painting "bears all the signature trademarks of Picasso's mature style, and it is exciting to share this large, impressive painting with the public," said Patricia McDonnell, Ulrich director .
4) This weekend, the museum will be open from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. today and 1-5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Admission is free. The museum is closed on Mondays.
