a dream come true
MORE THAN 200 OF THE MOST RENOWNED MASTERPIECES OF PICASSO SHOWN TOGETHER FOR THE FIRST TIME
Today, this exhibition could simply not happen since the skyrocketing prices that the works have reached would impact directly insurance and transportation costs. The paintings projected in Imagine Picasso are issued from prestigious museum collections such as the Musée Picasso in Paris, the Museu Picasso Barcelona, the MoMa in New York, the Pushkin Museum in Moscow and also from private collections. An impressive selection impossible to gather physically at the same place at the same time.
Picasso is the only modern artist whose works are classified as national treasures and forbidden to tour and loaned eg Les Demoiselles d’Avignon (1907), Guernica (1937). These works are considered masterpieces akin to Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa.
