An exhibition of 300 works by the Spanish modernist drew more than 700,000 people to The Metropolitan Museum of Art between April 19 and Aug. 15. That makes it the most highly attended show since 2001.
The museum announced Tuesday that "Picasso in The Metropolitan Museum of Art" was the seventh-most attended show since it began tracking exhibition attendance 50 years ago. It averaged 6,700 visitors per day.
The smash show featured paintings, drawings, sculptures and ceramics by the artist, who died in 1973.
"Seated Harlequin" from 1901 and "The Actor" from 1904-1905 were among the masterpieces on view during the 17-week exhibition.
