Picasso. Tradition and Avant-garde

Picasso. Tradition and Avant-garde

Madrid 6/6/2006 - 9/3/2006

Picasso. Tradition and Avant-garde, sponsored by Fundación Winterthur and co-produced by the Sociedad Estatal de Conmemoraciones Culturales (SECC), will be a major retrospective of the work of the most important Spanish artist of the 20th century. It comprises a survey of more than 100 masterpieces created over the course Picasso’s long and active career, which will be shown divided between the principal galleries of Spain’s two leading, national museums. Every stage of Picasso’s career will be represented, allowing for an overview of the most important phases within his oeuvre; from the Blue and Pink periods, to Cubism, the return to order in the 1920s, his relations with the Surrealist movement, the difficult years between the Spanish Civil War and World War II, up to the fertile last decades. The exhibition is a complete retrospective, which, due to the importance of the works included, can be considered of equal importance to other such exhibitions on the artist organised over the past few decades. On this occasion the exhibition brings together some of Picasso’s most important paintings from museums and collections around the world, whose generosity has meant that most will be seen in Spain for the first time. Including works such as Three Musicians which has only travelled to Europe twice, the last time almost forty years ago.
