Throughout 2010 exhibitions about the work of Picasso are taking place around the world; this is a great year for anyone interested in his work.
At present, apart from the temporary exhibition that just opened at the Picasso Museum on the relationship between Picasso and Santiago Rusiñol, the exhibition “Picasso: Peace and Freedom”, on art and politics in Picasso’s work at the Tate Liverpool can be seen, among others. An exhibition on Picasso and the horse has also recently been inaugurated at the Picasso Museum of Málaga, and since last month a major exhibition of the complete collection of Picasso’s work from the museum’s collection has been opened at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. In this same city, an exhibition of Picasso’s engravings can also be seen at the MoMA.

At the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute in Massachusetts, the exhibition “Picasso Looks at Degas”, an exhibition the American press has named one of the most interesting of the year, is about to be inaugurated. The exhibition is co-produced with the Museu Picasso of Barcelona and will be inaugurated on 13 June in the US. Beginning on 15 October it may be visited at our museum!

This exhibition explores, for the first time, Degas’ influence on Picasso’s work and reflects on the process of absorption, incorporation and transformation that Picasso undertook with the work of Degas, an artist from a generation prior to his own. It will be a unique opportunity to see great works by both artists in Barcelona!
And there are still more Picasso exhibitions to open throughout the year: we will keep you informed on our website, in the “Picasso News” section. Don’t miss it!
