Picasso fans will be happy to know that 62 works by the master will soon be exhibited in Shanghai. The bad news is they'll have to "pony up" at least 80 yuan for the privilege.

The exhibition will start at China Pavilion in Shanghai's World Expo Park on October 18th and run for three months to January 10th next year. The 62 masterpieces of Picasso include 48 oil paintings, seven woodblocks and seven sculptures.

Spanning a 70-year period of time, the earliest work goes back to the "Barefoot girl", painted when Picasso was only fourteen years old.

The latest work, "Sunday," was painted when he was 90. Visitors could enjoy different periods of the master's creating styles, such as his blue period, rose period and cubism period.

The showpieces recently left Taiwan after a three-month exhibition there. So far, this is the largest Picasso exhibition in the region. The supplier, the French National Picasso Museum, hopes this touring exhibition can help raise funds for the museum's expansion plans.

With tickets priced at 80 yuan on weekdays and 120 yuan on weekends, they have a chance of meeting their 36 million euro target. Nevertheless, true fans of Picasso would not miss this great opportunity to view truly "priceless" masterpieces.
