What links did Pablo Picasso maintain with the Mediterranean space?

This exhibition gives an overview of the life and work of Pablo Picasso in the Mediterranean by showing the richness of links uniting Picasso with this geographical area. Thanks to innovative audio-visual equipment and a collection of exceptional works, the exhibition allows us to contemplate the Mediterranean of the Spanish artist in a poetic and immersive way, from the landscapes he painted of the ports in Malaga and Barcelona to the works of his later years, via Antibes and Vallauris in the sun-drenched Midi.

His Mediterranean influences will also be highlighted, from the Iberian pre-historic to Ancient Greece and the Orient, via North Africa.
Based on the richness of the Musée national Picasso-Paris collections, and their archives and photographs in particular, as well as masterpieces presented in Paris for the first time, the exhibition aims to contrast the ‘Picasso-Mediterranean’ event that has brought together more than seventy institutions in ten Mediterranean countries and three million visitors since 2017.
