The Grimaldi Forum Monaco Announces its Next Major Summer Exhibition

20/11/2012  Culture

"Monaco Celebrates Picasso" is a tribute to the painter on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of his death



The Grimaldi Forum Monaco wished to offer a new look at Picasso's artistic work, revealing not only his special links with the Côte d'Azur but also an exceptional selection of major works from a remarkable private collection. 

The exhibition is based on two themes, which are reflected in more than 150 works:

"Picasso and the Côte d'Azur" will transport visitors around Antibes-Juan-les-Pins, Golfe-Juan, Mougins and Cannes.   Between 1920 and 1946, Picasso was very attracted to this region in the summer;  the Mediterranean light, the sea and the coast were direct sources of inspiration for him.

"Picasso in the Nahmad Collection" will highlight masterpieces by the artist that form a centrepiece to this collection, which is unique in the world because of its importance and quality.  The collection was built up by Ezra and David Nahmad over the past 50 years.
