Picasso's relationship with sculpture was experimental, he was free with his sculpting, and placed no restrictions on his works and process. The majority of his pieces he kept in his own collection for his lifetime. In 1966, the pieces were brought to the public at the Paris retrospective Hommage à Picasso.

The following year, MoMA showcased The Sculpture of Picasso, the first and until now, the only retrospective in America to exhibit Picasso's sculptures. Picasso Sculpture has over 100 pieces, and also includes a careful selection of photographs and works on paper to accompany the sculptures.
