An acclaimed genius for his portraits and still life, Picasso is not well known for landscape painting. However, he painted landscapes intermittently throughout his career and particularly in Barcelona when he was a student. This exhibition presents 29 small oil paintings and drawings of Barcelona’s seafront and urban areas from the Museu Picasso’s permanent collection. Most of the landscapes were painted between 1895 and 1903 when the city was modernising and opening up to Europe. The landscapes—which follow the coastline from Montjuïc, past the port and on to Barceloneta—bear witness to Picasso’s creative evolution. He freely explored perspective, light, brushstrokes and colour in these paintings and they show how his style develops, from his formative years through to his personal avant-garde style. The works are accompanied by 18 photographs from city archives that show the landscapes the artist painted.
