Picasso and Dalí. Dalí and Picasso. Two names etched proudly in Catalunya’s cultural heritage; two icons and two mavericks, born just 25 years apart. For the first time ever, the great masters of modern art stand side by side at the Museu Picasso for an iconic exhibition, bringing together rarely loaned works from more than 25 international art museums and private collections from around the world.
Organised in collaboration with the Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida (where it ran from November until February), this landmark exhibition offers a ‘rereading of the relationship between two key figures of 20th-century art’, and challenges conventional historical views of the two artists as isolated and politically opposed figures, who developed their styles independently.
“Surprisingly, this is a part of the history that has not been told before,” says Museu Picasso’s Director, Bernardo Laniado-Romero. Dozens of works, including paintings, drawings, prints and sculpture, tell the tale of their relationship, the influence they had on each other, their response to the contentious times in which they lived, and the radical art movements which they were part of. Not to be missed!
