Picasso and Andalusia

9 Oct. 2018 3 Feb. 2019

Picasso and Andalusia explores the relationship between the work of Pablo Picasso and the artistic heritage held at Andalusian museums. In the exhibition, we will see a juxtaposition of the artistic riches of Andalusia and a selection of work by Picasso from the Musée National Picasso in Paris and other institutions, enabling connections to be made between Picasso and Iberian art, classical antiquity, the Spanish Baroque period and the Andalusian modern avant-garde movements.

The aim of the exhibition is to highlight and analyse themes that Picasso explored at different stages in his career, and which are crucial to understanding his origins and his cultural connections and inclinations towards the Andalusia in which he was born and raised, with its landscapes, still-lives and rituals. These highly complex issues are very much part of Andalusian artistic traditions, and they bear testimony to a unique cultural idiosyncrasy that is the result of the union of diverse cultures.

Picasso and Andalusia is one of the exhibitions in the international ‘Picasso Méditerranée’ project, led by the Musée national Picasso, Paris.

Organized in collaboration with Council of Culture of the Regional Government of Andalusia.
