I remember the first time I went to the Evergreen Museum, a Johns Hopkins-owned house/art museum in North Baltimore. As I wandered around the rooms, admiring the furniture, I noticed a striking, small painting in the corner.  “That?” the tour guide said. “It’s a Picasso.”

Baltimore has such grandly impressive art museums that it’s easy to forget about the Evergreen, but that’s a mistake: the house/museum’s period rooms also include some of the most exciting post-Impressionist art on view in Baltimore, including paintings by Modigliani, Degas, and, yes, Picasso. And the art hasn’t stopped coming in, either — in recent years, the museum has acquired or been gifted paintings, sculptures, and design objects, many of which haven’t been on display before.
