Pablo Picasso returns to Italy, this time in Milan, for an exhibit of over 200 works, many of which have never left the Picasso Museum in Paris. In occasion of this grand anthology dedicated to the eclectic Spanish artist, the 200 pieces will fill the halls of Milan’s Palazzo Reale.
The retrospective - curated by Anne Baldassari and conceived as an itinerary that narrates the artist’s productions chronologically - compares his various techniques and modes of expression, all which he developed during the course of his long career.
Among his innumerable works are those from Picasso’s Blue and Pink Periods; as well as that of his “African” or proto-cubist research; Synthetic Cubism and Classic Cubism; the surrealist paintings; his years of political activism and paintings on the themes of war; those inspired by the grand masters of Renaissance and Modern art; and, finally, his very last productions before his passing away in 1972.
Some of the masterpieces making up the exhibition include: La Celestine (1904), Paul as a Harlequin (1924), La Lecture (1932), Portrait of Dora Maar and The Supplicant (1937), Massacre in Korea (1951) and La Matador (1970).
