About the exhibition
The Musée National Picasso-Paris will present the ten masterpieces which were offered by Picasso to the Musée National d’Art Moderne at the Hôtel Salé for its inauguration in 1947. An opportunity to celebrate two important moments in the history of the Musée National d’Art Moderne’s collection — its inauguration at the Palais de Tokyo and its transfer to the Centre Pompidou — by rediscovering masterpieces such as Atelier de la Modiste (1926), La Muse (1935) or L’Aubade (1942). This project brings together the two partner institutions in order to present not only the works of art but also the archives and the documents that tell the story of their creation, their acquisition and their first exhibition. The exhibition is also subject to a publication showcasing the state of research on this major moment of the history of art and the national collections.
