Monaco Celebrates Picasso this Summer at the Grimaldi Forum
A tribute to mark the 40th anniversary of the artist's death
The Grimaldi Forum Monaco wanted to offer a new look at the work of Pablo Picasso, 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, which consists of more than 150 works, is based on two main thematic groups:
- "Picasso and the Côte d'Azur" will transport visitors to Antibes-Juan-les-Pins, Golfe-Juan, Mougins and Cannes - a region that held such a strong attraction for Pablo Picasso in summer, between 1920 and 1946. The Mediterranean light, the sea and the coast were sources of direct inspiration for him.
- "Picasso and the Nahmad Collection" will showcase masterpieces by Picasso that occupy a central place in this collection, which is unique in the world, both for its importance and its quality. The collection was compiled by Ezra and David Nahmad over the past fifty years.
The exhibition has been jointly curated by Jean-Louis Andral, Director of the Picasso Museum in Antibes, Marilyn McCully, a renowned specialist in Picasso, and Michael Raeburn, a writer who has collaborated with her on numerous works on Picasso.
