The Echo of Picasso
Pablo Picasso had an enormous influence on the art of the 20th century, working in a remarkable variety of styles. In addition to Cubism, his principal contribution to modern art was the freedom that characterises every aspect of his painting, sculpture and graphic production.
There is widespread agreement on the profound impact that he had on the art world, allowing it to be said that no artist prior to Picasso had a comparable and massive group of followers and admirers as well as art critics. The exhibition The Echo of Picasso ̶ curated by Eric Troncy ̶ centres around this effect exercised by his artistic practices on today’s world and above all in the current globalized art scene. It brings together the work of thirty artists in dialogue with the Malaga-born artist.
Exhibition organized with the special collaboration of Fundación Almine y Bernard Ruiz-Picasso.
