Pablo Picasso and Auguste Rodin: two artists, two big names in the art world. The Musée Rodin and the Musée national Picasso team up and present the “Picasso - Rodin, une exposition, deux lieux” [Picasso-Rodin, one exhibition, two locations]. This double event is set at the same time, from February 9 to July 18, 2021, in both museums.
This is going to be a great meeting in the galleries of the Musée Rodin. Picasso and Rodin face one another and answer one another through their works. In this mix of paintings and sculptures, we discover a rather unexpected dialog, a resonance and an unexpected proximity.
Both exhibitions complete one another, each focusing on a different art aspect of both men. At the Musée Rodin, we discover the plastic solutions invented by both artists to represent the real, their experiments, their successes and their improvements. At the Musée Picasso, the tour focuses on the private sphere of creation in the studio’s laboratory. Visitors also follow Picasso’s footsteps discovering in 1900 the “Rodin” retrospective at the Pavillon de l’Alma.
This double exhibition highlights the richness of art processes, the genius of both artists and their similitudes, even though their own works are unique. Yet, there is one question that remains: with what museum will you start this incredible experience first?
