Visit: Museo Picasso Malaga, Calle San Agustin 8, 29015 Malaga Spain
At the Malaga Picasso Museum, you will see Picasso's work stretched over a period of time. It also points out its intrinsic versatility and the cyclical nature of his artistic investigations, drawing attention to his constant vocation for exploring the expressive possibilities of any medium.
The exhibition narrative is the result of the close collaboration between Fundación Almine y Bernard Ruiz-Picasso para el Arte (FABA), which for the next three years will be contributing with a selection of 166 works from their holdings. Among the works that are being incorporated into the new layout are Restaurant (1914), an exceptional oil painting that has been cut out and stuck onto glass, and which is shown here for the very first time; The Three Graces, a large canvas that shows a more classical and monumental Picasso; and the iconic bronze, Head of a Bull (1942), made from the seat and handlebars of a bicycle. Along with the rest of the works on display, they give shape to an exhibition narrative that starts with the artist’s formative years, continues with the great stylistic and thematic moments of his career – cubism, the Mediterranean, portraiture – and ends with his reinterpretation of the great masters, all of them with that combination of talent, technique and expression that made Picasso the great artist of the 20th-century.
