Picasso Statue ("Untitled")

Located in Daley Plaza, the famed "Untitled" Picasso stands 50 feet tall and weighs more than 160 tons. It was commissioned in 1963 by the architects of the Richard J. Daley Center to anchor the plaza on the east side of the building.

Picasso worked on this commission for two years, combining and modifying sketches and motifs from some of his earlier works in the design of the sculpture. This resulted in a 42-inch tall maquette, or model, of the sculpture. Both the maquette and sketches of the sculpture may be seen at the Art Institute of Chicago.
