With more than 13,500 paintings and 300 sculptures created over a lifetime, there is always something to talk about. Ultimately, he is the most influential artist in the 20th century. After all these years having regular exhibits on this spectacular genie, we might think that we know Picasso. But, do we, really?

Picasso 1932 – Love, Fame, Tragedy
Recently, French President Emmanuel Macron visited a newly started exhibit titled 1932: L’Année Erotique. Hmm, you might feel, is it an erotic year?
Well, it could be, depends on who sees it. The exhibition curator said that Picasso used strong erotic and sexual power as driving forces in his paintings that year. Picasso was utterly productive and produced 300 works of art in 1932 alone. In this exhibit, there are more than 110 paintings, drawings, engravings and sculptures.
President Macron was exploring the artworks accompanied by the artist’s daughter, Maya Widmaier-Picasso, at the weekend before it opens for public. Maya was born in 1935. She is daughter of Pablo Picasso and Marie-Thérèse Walter. The main masterpieces presented in this exhibit are “The Dream” and “Girl Before a Mirror”, both are portraits of Maya’s mother. Walter was 17 when she met Picasso and she became Picasso’s muse ever since.
This exhibit is carefully translated as the year of Love, Fame and Tragedy. I guess Musée Picasso Paris lets you judge the importance of this year as source of inspirations for Picasso.
This exhibit shows a complete year of life of the Spanish artist, chronologically presented in partnership of Tate Modern in London.
The artworks will be available in both cities:
|Musée Picasso, Paris||10 October 2017 until 11 February 2018|
|Tate Modern, London||8 March until 9 September 2018|
