Paris / “Picasso 1932. Erotic year” chronologically traverses in the Picasso Museum in Paris the twelve months that mark a turning point in the career of the artist from Malaga, from which came masterpieces such as “Le Rêve”, “Le Repos” or “Jeune fille devant un miroir “.
From today until February 11, and in collaboration with the Tate Modern from London, to where it will be leaving in March, the first exclusive exhibition dedicated to a full year of the creator shows, according to the curator Virginie Perdrisot, that “Picasso is capable of everything.”
The artist (1881-1973) was married Olga Khokhlova, mother of his eldest son, Paulo, but his mistress, Marie-Thèrese, appear in the paintings from 1932 and for the first time with identifiable traits after five years of relationship.
However, more than the sensuality of his painting, his contemporaries were struck by the unorthodox way in which Picasso presented his canvases at the Petit Gallery in Paris: several heights on the walls and without a thematic order.
It was that first great retrospective at the Petit Gallery in Paris, which made him fall into that creative frenzy and reinforced his image between criticism and the public.
Afterwards, Picasso reduced the intensity and gave rise to formats of smaller size, and with a less aggressive sensuality, according to Perdrisot.
The museum exhibits more than 110 paintings, drawings, engravings and sculptures, these follow the artist every month and mark the concrete day of the creation of each painting, and accompanies this journey with documents, invoices or photographs that place him in place and time.
Picasso “never locked himself up in a period”, “always had bridges,” said French President Emmanuel Macron at the opening of the exhibition. (October 11, 2017, EFE/Practica Español)
