PICASSO’S ON THE BEACH AT PEGGY GUGGENHEIM COLLECTIONFrom: 26-08-2017 To: 07-01-2018
From August 26, 2017 to January 7, 2018 Peggy Guggenheim Collection presents the dossier exhibition PICASSO, at the exhibition spaces of Project Rooms.
Through a unique and fine selection of artworks (3 paintings and 10 draws made by Pablo Picasso from February 1987 and December of the same year) Barbero tries to show the artist’s work under a new light. The main objective is highlighting Picasso’s relationship with the Mediterranean Sea, which had an important role in his artistic career. From his roots in Spain to his life in France.
The exhibit was born thanks to the collaboration with the Musée Picasso, in Paris and it winds around one masterpiece that Peggy Guggenheim herself loved so much: Picasso’s On the Beach (La Baignade). Nowadays this painting belongs to the Venetian museum. The exhibition is part of the triennale Picasso-Méditerranée program, promoted by the Musée National Picasso-Paris, which includes seminars, publications, studies and exhibitions. More than sixty institutions have cooperating in organizing a series of exhibitions about Picasso’s “obstinate Mediterranean” artwork, in order to celebrate his art and his relationship with the Mediterranean culture.
