Since March 2017, the rooms that house the Picasso Museum’s permanent collection have been renewed, gaining closeness and knowledge about the work of Pablo Picasso. Of marked chronological accent, the new presentation reveals the extension of the artist’s work over time, as well as the intrinsic versatility of his work and the cyclical nature of his artistic research, focusing attention on his constant vocation to explore the expressive possibilities of any support.
This new expository story is the result of the close collaboration between the Picasso Museum Malaga and the Almine and Bernard Ruiz-Picasso Foundation for Art (FABA), which during the next three years contributes to the speech with a selection of one hundred and sixty-six works from of your funds. Among the works that are incorporated into the new route, are Restaurant (1914), an exceptional oil cut and pasted on glass that is exposed for the first time to the public; The Three Graces (1923), a large canvas in which the most classic and monumental Picasso is shown; or the iconic bronze Cabeza de toro (1942), made with the handlebar and saddle of a bicycle. All of them, together with the rest of the exhibited works, make up an expository narrative that begins with the formative years, passes through the great stylistic and thematic moments of his career -cubismo, mediterranean, the portrait … – and ends with the reinterpretation of the great masters, all with the combination of talent, technique and expression that made Picasso the great artist of the twentieth century.
