Picasso, Timeless Art

Picasso, Timeless Art
#Exhibitions

Throughout his life as an artist, Pablo Picasso was able to nourish himself with the art of every era and style, allowing himself to be deeply inspired. From 1906 - a key year for his production - until the last works of the 1960s, the artist drew inspiration from African, but also Neolithic and proto-Iberian (pre-Roman Spain) examples. He took inspiration from Oceanic art, ancient Egyptian art and that of classical Greece (black-figure vases). His genius was able to invent skilful transpositions, remodeling shapes with disproportionate volumes, in a constant "metamorphosis" of the figures which often have a strong erotic connotation, and which have governed the evolution of his painting and sculpture, especially in moments of personal or social crisis.
