Exhibition Name:

Pablo Picasso: Form, Sign, Genius

Description: Spanning more than seventy years of uninterrupted activity, Picasso experimented with and mastered every engraving technique. Through works from his most famous series, this exhibition highlights Picasso's genius and his ability to translate the most disparate forms of human expression into images.

Las Suite des Saltimbanques is a series of fifteen loosely-related etchings and drypoints created from 1904 to 1905. This was Picasso's first major body of work in printmaking and is integrally connected to his paintings and drawings of the same period. Like the rest of his oeuvre, these prints are distinguished by an astonishing economy and elegance of line that reveal the artist's immensely sophisticated eye, even at this early stage in his career.

La Taurmaquia is a love letter to bullfighting written by Jose Delgado in the 18th century. Picasso had a lifelong love of bullfighting, which was a frequent theme in his work. In 1957, he created 26 etchings for Delgado's book, paring the process of bullfighting to its purest forms, from the dynamic action itself to the meditative silence before and after a fight. Carmen was born in a novella by Prosper Merimee and made famous in an opera by Georges Bizet. Picasso identified with the Spanish gypsy and illustrated editions of Merimee's book late in life.
