IMAGINE PICASSO PAYS TRIBUTE TO THE GENIUS AND THE FREEDOM OF PICASSO’S CREATION
“I think this exhibition would have pleased my grandfather a lot because he was, above all, a man of freedom.”
Olivier Widmaier Picasso, grandson of Pablo Picasso about the Imagine Picasso exhibition
Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) embodies the Master of Modern Art: constantly reinventing himself, Picasso revolutionized the forms and the academic aesthetics through several art mediums. An impressive 78-year career of the most prolific creative genius of all-times: he produced an average of 120,000 artworks – including paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, and ceramics.
Eminently notorious, Picasso is more than a household name in the West, he is the only artist whose name became a world-widely famous brand.
