Picasso abroad
From 4 November 2021 to 13 February 2022

Based on a stunning investigation by historian Annie Cohen-Solal, this exhibition takes a radically new look at one of the greatest artists of our time: Pablo Picasso.

It seems that everything has been said about Picasso, the mythical artist of the 20th century. No work has provoked as much passion, debate and controversy as his. But who today is aware of the obstacles that paved the way for the young artist, convinced of his genius, who arrived in Paris in 1900 without speaking a word of French? How did Picasso find his bearings in this modern metropolis, still shaken by the aftermath of the Dreyfus Affair? How did he organize his first friendships and his first successes? Why, in 1940, when he was celebrated throughout the world, was his request for French naturalization refused? Why did his work remain invisible in the museums of his host country until 1947?
