Picasso à l'Image ExhibitionSaturday May 14, from 6 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.
"Picasso à l'image" is a themed course focusing on Pablo Picasso's appearances. From art movies and archives, the artist appears, showing the different sides of his life, his work: father and genius creator, Mediterranean hedonist and tireless worker, cheerful person and loyal driend... The artist himself is given pride of place along this tour. Facing these pictures are presented pieces from the collections, echoeing each of these screenings.

The exhibition celebrates the inclusion of nine masterpieces into the national collections - six paintings, two sculptures and a sketching pad - via the country’s gifts-in-lieu scheme. Approved by the State in 2021, Maya Ruiz-Picasso's gifts-in-lieu is part of the founding story of the museum and extends its spirit. The course proposes a fruitful exchange between Far-Western art, ancient art and modern art through an ensemble of pieces by Picasso, pieces from his collection and a selection of remarkable loans.
