Ten Picassos from the Kunstmuseum Basel
Museo Nacional del Prado. Madrid 3/18/2015 - 9/14/2015
Picasso returns to the Prado through the Swiss museum’s works that best fit in with the exhibition message as they reflect, in the form of an essential anthology, some of decisive moments in the artist’s career, such as the end of his blue and rose periods, his foray into synthetic cubism, his return to “neoclassicism”, his experience during the war and the retrospective experiments of the last years of his life. The showing of this set of Picasso masterpieces revives the artist’s personal and artistic link with the Prado, which he directed during the Civil War years, and sparks a fruitful dialogue with great artists of the Renaissance and Baroque.
