Ohio: Picassos among pieces going on public view at Wexner Center

When retail mogul Leslie Wexner peers at one of the Picassos, Dubuffets or Giacomettis in the personal art collection he and his wife Abigail have amassed over the years, he feels a range of emotions that often include gratitude, defeat and exhilaration. Art lovers will get an opportunity to experience their own emotional responses to the Wexners’ rarely seen collection in an exhibit, Transfigurations, which runs through Dec. 31 at the Wexner Center for the Arts on the campus of Ohio State University. Among other rarities on display is Nude in a Black Armchair, which Picasso painted in 1932.
