Pablo Picasso. Autorretrato con paleta
Organised and produced in conjunction with the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, this exhibition reveals how Picasso's years in Paris shaped his artistic evolution.
The exposition exhibits 60 works by Picasso alongside pieces by Cézanne, Toulouse-Lautrec, Rodin, Gauguin Steinlen and, in particular, Van Gogh, whose prestige was at its zenith in Paris at the time. It brilliantly demonstrates how the thriving international art scene of the French capital transformed the artist from newcomer to leader of the vanguard. A must see for Picasso experts and novices alike.
