We recently undertook the restoration of three landscapes from the collection painted by the young Picasso in the summer of 1896. As we will explain further on, we consider that the series should be conceived as a unit and for this reason the three works were intervened within the framework of the same project.
The street of Montcada gathers together a singular representation of architecture of late medieval Barcelona. The so-called “large houses” that make it up are today a conjunction and superimposition of styles, that despite the transformations, haven’t lost their original spirit.
On Friday January 30th we held the seminar “The Blue Period: New Interpretations by Means of Technical Studies” at the Museu Picasso. The seminar provided us with plenty of new information that posed many challenges both for restorers as well as for art historians.
The aim of this conference was to make known and also to make available the latest technical studies that have been carried out on the emblematic works of the Blue Period, a fundamental period closely linked to the city of Barcelona. The applications of new technologies have allowed us to “see” the underlying works and to obtain a lot of information about the pictorial process of the artist.
What will we be doing in 2015? This last Tuesday we presented the museum’s programming of what the museum will be doing this year. Exhibitions, seminars, activities, presentations, restorations and family workshops, amongt others, will form part of the new programme that we have planned for 2015. Following you can find an outline of the main events:

Multiplying the images by means of a copper matrix is the essence of the print. This allows the artist to produce multiple prints that can be acquired and spread around the world.
