About the Exhibition
Picasso and the Allure of the South, presented exclusively at The Dalí, explores the influence of southern Europe on Pablo Picasso’s revolutionary work. Some of Picasso’s most creative and prolific artistic periods took place during extended sojourns in the mountain towns of northern Spain and along the Mediterranean coast of France. This ambitious exhibition considers the artist’s deep and abiding connection to this cross-cultural region, where he made many of his most important contributions to modern art.
Organized in collaboration with the Musée national Picasso-Paris, which holds the most significant collection of the artist’s works, the exhibit presents 77 paintings, drawings and collages – approximately half of which have never been seen in the U.S., including the canvasses Portrait de Madame Rosenberg et sa fille (1918), Femme au buffet (1936) and Le Baiser (1969). Among the other exceptional works to be showcased are Nature morte à la table servie (1913), Paysage de Juan-les-Pins (1920), Femmes dans un intérieur (1936) and Musicien (1972). The exhibit encompasses an exceptional selection of portraits, still lifes, figural studies and landscapes that reflect his career-long rapport with the cultures of his homeland and southern France while incorporating historical photographs that provide candid glimpses of Picasso in his series of studios in the south.
Picasso and the Allure of the South is curated by Dr. William Jeffett, The Dalí’s chief curator. The exhibition is organized in collaboration with the Musée national Picasso-Paris.
The presenting sponsor of Picasso and the Allure of the South is Sabal Trust.
