Pablo Picasso visited Paris for his first time in 1900. One year later he returned to the city again. What did he see during his stay? How did it influence his art?
The Picasso museum in Barcelona is a fantastic gallery for those in love with Picasso and his works. But, if you decide to visit the museum sometime between September 21st and January 6th, you can enjoy a temporary exhibition consisting of works made by lots of other painters. Why?
To answer the question what Picasso saw in Paris in 1900 and 1901, you need to look at the works of the painters who had their art exhibited in Paris at that time. Some of the artists you will meet as you come to check out this exhibition are Bartholomé, Carrière, Delacroix, Manet, Toulouse-Lautrec, Capiello, Degas, Cézanne, Steinlen and Gauguin.
The exhibition is a cooperation with Musee d’ Orsay in Paris from whom they get most of the exhibited paintings. To return the kindness, the Picasso museum in Barcelona will let Musee d’ Orsay in Paris borrow some of the pictures from the permanent exhibition in Barcelona for the same period of time.
Doesn’t this sound like an interesting temporary exhibition to check out in Barcelona? You can read more about it at the official site.
The entry to the temporary exhibition alone is 6,50 Euro. To visit the permanent exhibition and the temporary exhibition together the price is 14 Euro.
