Picasso and War, exhibition

05/04/2019 - 28/07/2019

Picasso's subtle and symbolic statements.

Motifs of war and symbols of peace appear again and again in Picasso's work.
Picasso consistently claimed that his paintings were his "diary", a personal and secret diary that reveals his intimate thoughts. He lived and worked during a large part of the 20th century, a period that was marked by two world conflicts and the presence of totalitarianism. He therefore addresses themes such as war and the contemporary tragedy.
The exhibition explores the different ways in which war feeds and influences Picasso's work throughout his artistic career. One of Picasso's key works, Guernica opens the exhibition, with a 1:1 scale reproduction of the work. This also constitutes the tipping point, since it marks the beginning of the artist's public activism.
