This July sees the opening in the Museu de Cadaqués of the exhibition “Picasso’s Cadaqués: the Centenary of Pablo Picasso’s Stay in Cadaqués 1910-2010”. Curated by Pere Vehí and Ricard Mas, the show boasts an impressive selection of photographs, drawings and oil paintings by artists associated with the little town of Cadaqués.
View of Cadaqués
On the top floor of the museum, and on show here for the first time, are a large number of historic photographs of the town as it was when Picasso discovered it, at a key moment in his Cubist period. The two lower floors host a generous selection of oils and drawings by artists with close links to Cadaqués, such as Ramon Pichot, Meifrèn, Durancamps, Burmann, Roig i Soler, Matilla and the very early Dalí, alternating with photographic reproductions of the pictures Picasso made in Cadaqués, which bear witness to his time there.
The Museu de Cadaqués
The Museu de Cadaqués is housed in a splendid building in the historic town centre, the façades of which have recently been restored. The exhibition will be open until 11 January 2011, and is yet another reason to visit this beautiful location which has inspired so many artists from this country and abroad.
The rooms of the museum
The Museu Picasso has provided the exhibition project with scientific and logistical support under the collaboration agreement signed with the town of Cadaqués in 2009, as part of our ongoing commitment to furthering links with all of the places in Catalonia associated with Picasso and his work.
