This exhibition celebrates the friendship between the artist and the illustrious local Reventós family, giving the viewer a glimpse into a more personal aspect of Picasso’s life. Letters between the two are on show, many of them illustrated by Picasso’s drawings, as well as a series of portraits by Picasso of the Reventós family. Picasso’s first meeting with brothers Ramon and Jacint Reventós Bordoy in 1899 sparked a friendship which would last generations. The artist’s bond with the Reventós family survived the Civil War and the death of Ramon Reventós Bordoy, and Picasso would later go on to support the family’s medical foundation, inspiring the creation of today’s Picasso-Reventós Foundation, which has supported the organisation of this exhibition. A must-see for fans of art and history alike.
