For the first time, the major stages that marked the links between Picasso's work and the history of abstract art is brought to light.
From the first Cubist experiments of 1907, carried out on the fringes of Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, to his later work, which is sometimes situated on the borders of action painting, this surprising relationship is shown in a subtle chronological and thematic exhibition, where more than one hundred exceptional works reveal the artist's pendulum movement between abstraction and the figurative over the decades.
Another major theme of the exhibition is the artist's studio, a true formal laboratory, and shows Picasso's creative process through various series of drawings and prints, allowing the viewer to understand how he works and reflects on the representation of the chosen motifs.
The exhibition, with its sharp and innovative theme, invites the viewer to appreciate Pablo Picasso’s extraordinary creativity and his ability to constantly reinvent himself.
