The Grimaldi Forum featured "Monaco celebrates Picasso", a major event marking the 40th anniversary of the death of this world renowned artist.
With this exhibition, the Grimaldi Forum Monaco offered an original insight into Picasso’s artistic production, showing not only the close links he had with the Côte d’Azur, but also presenting an exceptional selection of major works from a remarkable private collection.
The exhibition is divided into two thematic parts, which include a total of 160 works:
-“Picasso Côte d’Azur” transports the exhibition visitors to Antibes - Juan-les-Pins, Golfe-Juan, Mougins and Cannes, places that appealed so much to Pablo Picasso, who spent many summers there between 1920 and 1946, where the Mediterranean light, the sea and the coast were direct sources of inspiration for him.
-“Picasso in the Nahmad collection” highlights masterpieces by the artist that form a major share of a private collection, unique in the world for its depth and quality, which has been assembled by Ezra and David Nahmad over the past half century.
